Probably asked a 1000 times

We have stripped down our 95 YJ and will be lining and painting next couple of weeks. Anyway, after several cans of Freeze Out, scrapped knuckles, some cursing, a set of easy outs, ... finally got all the Torx bolts out. I started looking for replacement Torx bolts, then realized I should not drink beer when planning on putting it back together

I figured I would replace (especially roll bar, seat belts) floor Torx (ones that get nasty) with hex heads. I can just match the ones noted above, but for future reference was wondering if anybody had ever put together a spread sheet or doc that showed "to replace Roll Bar Torx use this size Hex", etceteras? I would not mind replacing every Torx bolt in the interior with hex.

I did a search, but lots of hits on Torx / Hex and I admit I only looked through first 10 or so.

If you run into problems with Torx bolts again , Weld a nut onto the Bolt then use wrench to get bolt out. Easy if and no broken knuckles. Sorry for the info late !!!

If you are really into it:

I personally take the bolts down to Ace Hardware and match them up with a hex grade 8 nut and bolt to replace it.

This.

I wouldn't waste the time for the torx head bolts. Just get some good grade 8's by matching from ACE or Lowe's like Que said.

Now that I reread your question, I don't know? I thought there was a master list but I sure can't find it. The torque spec list is there. I wonder.... someone else like MAX, RUSTY, or JBolty might need to chime in!
