OEM Front Skid Plate Bolts

I just picked up an used 1997+ Jeep Cherokee front engine skid plate for my Jeep. But the guy did not have the mounting bolts, I was wondering if someone could tell me the size I need to buy that will work? Also how many bolts will it take to mount it?

Thanks!

The three across the front are usually studs, IIRC, they are 8mm. The capscrews for the ends on the frame are 10mm.

Ok, thanks. How long do they need to be? So when I go to the store, I know what to buy.

The 8mm ones are about 25 mm long and the 10mm ones are about 35mm long

Oh ok, thanks and I don't need bolts? They just screw into the uniframe?

IIRC the front studs are self tappers, so, unless yours had a skid plate, you'll need to cut some threads. The ones into the unibody have threadded holes.
