Shift tower bolt size

Seem to have misplaced the shift tower bolts for my ax15. Anyone know off hand what size those bolts are??
The 4 bolts that hold the shift tower to the trans.

Didn't go ad any but I found this online in case anyone else has the same problem

They are just regular 8MM X 1.25 thread pitch bolts. The 2 on the passenger are standard bolts, about 30MM long. The 2 on the driver's side have a "stud" built into the head about 20MM tall. You could use a 50MM bolt with the head cut off and 2 nuts (1 to fasten the shift tower & 1 to attach the T-case shifter bracket) for each of the driver's side bolts.

Can't confirm the 8 X 1.25 until I get home and check the transmissions I have laying in the garage. Yes, 2 of them have a threaded stud above the head, but on mine, I have not had anything that connects on top of those threaded studs like a wire loom, etc. Truthfully I have not had to pull anything off of there on the numerous AX 15s I have yanked so I don't really know their purpose. I wouldn't mind someone telling me what the intended purpose is. Unless your setup was different, you can just go with standard hex heads and call it good.

I have seen these type fasteners referred to as Hex head stud bolts.

On an AX5 at least, the studded bolts are there to attach the transfer case shifter.
On the AX15 I used them the same way to make the AX5 transfer case shifter work on the AX15.
