Torx head w/ hole in middle to adjust top roll bars?

Okay, what's the torx that's used on the bolt that holds the horizontal roll bar in place (the one that's from the windshield to the main roll bar). It's a BIG torx head that must have a hole in the middle. How annoying!?!?

Where do I get one for a reasonable price?

Bumper to Bumper auto. They even have a big key ring with plastic size testers so you get the right one.

Its called a security torx head .. specialty shops will sell you those bits. If I remember right (off the top of my head) its a Torx 50 - but you might as well get the full set.

I'm with Naekid here, I just purchased myself a complete socket set, its like 153 pieces or something. Its got all kinds of sockets, a torx set, etc. very handy.
Especially with a Jeep, there are many different Torx size bolts on the rig, get urself a complete set and not worry about having the right one next time

I like those security torx, with that pin it makes them harder to strip.

I just double checked and NaeKid is right, they're Torx-50s.
