tow hitch

Hello everyone,
I am looking to install a tow hitch on my 1990 YJ. I was wondering once i got the bolts off could i reuse the stock bolts? if i need new bolts does anyone know what size?

Can't help you on the size as mine were changed a while ago.

But I would always get new bolts where possible on an old vehicle.

Stop whining about the 'ride' - If your YJ ain't wrangling your soul free, then might I suggest you buy a stationwagon... at least you can fit all your bull**** in the back.

I'm not sure if it is still a thing, but I think a lot of places add installation for free with the purchase of a hitch. If you haven't bought it already, its always nice to pass liability on to someone else. (although, DO check their work before towing)

Most new hitches come with all the hardware needed. The original bolts will probably be too short.

My Curt Hitch came with the needed bolts, washers and nuts. Install was 8 bolts off and 10 new ones in. I kept the original bumperettes.

Here's the PDF of the instructions that has the bolt sizes listed.
