can someone help with what size bolt I need??? It’s on front bumper.
Thank you in advance
Pop on over to your local auto parts store and they will be happy to help you out. Most will let you try out the bolt to make sure it works, and maybe even help you install it.
Best place around here is Tractor Supply. You can buy Grade 5 and Grade8 bolts by the pound many times almost as cheap as buying one or two at a hardware store.Exactly, good opportunity to get rid of the torx.
I go to Ace hardware and pickup grade 8 hardware for anything I need to replace.

Thank you, I’ll try that and see how it looksAxlroads - if you also want to replace the missing tow hooks, here is a cost effective set:
Quadratec is a vendor of Jeep only parts. They also offer Wrangler Forum members a discount most of their items. The only things I have come across that don't qualify are Mopar decals. Simple contact their customer service department by phone or email, explain that you are a WF member, ask to be set up for the discount and ask for a quote. The discount is not applied on screen to on online orders, but is applied at the time the invoice is generated.
Also, if that were my Jeep, I would take the plastic ends off (referred to by many as the milk jugs) and toss them. They serve little purpose, are easy to damage, fade with time and as you see in the photos, the screws rust. I actually did that with mine. I left the ends open for a good while but then got the end cover kit that goes on with push pins. I also removed my bumpers (your front one is almost off with possibly only the bottom screws hold in on), removed the pads and painted the bumper with a couple coats of Rustoleum black paint. Made a lot of difference in it's appearance.
I personally think the bumper looks better without the add on ends.
Hubby found right bolts and put them on, I am replacing the bumper though soon and “we” will install a winchPop on over to your local auto parts store and they will be happy to help you out. Most will let you try out the bolt to make sure it works, and maybe even help you install it.
Not to be sexist, however, this is the time to pull out and use your "Woman Card" and let a guy use his "Hero Card" to help you out here.
