Need Starter bolt size

So my wife went to start her Cherokee (97 sport) and the starter was just spinning. Crawled underneath it and the top starter bolt is missing.
Anyone know what size the bolt is so I can run to the hardware store and get one tonight. I really need to fix this tonight as its snowing like mad I would rather not drive my Mustang in this carp.
Thanks for any help.

There was a guy on here last night missing a starter bolt and he posted the sizes (they are different top and bottom)...the title was something like "new member-starter problem".
