Bolt size for tub on 85CJ

One of my main bolts it missing from the frame to tub mount. What size bolts are the 6 bolts along the sides of the tub and frame. Those 6 seem to be all about the same.

I'd pull one of the existing bolts out, but they are rusted in there pretty good and I don't want to mess with it if I don't have to.

I just want to buy one new bolt, slap some anti-sieze on it and tighten it up.

Never mind. I bought a 3/8 x 2" and it did the trick.

Jeep Daddy, I just bought a set of hardware for my CJ that is all stainless from 4wdHW. It is pretty complete, and everything is separately packaged and labeled. If you ever get the itch to replace those rusty ones, might be worth looking at. The whole thing is under a c-note, but you need the body washers as well.

Actually I had to tighten up most of the bolts because they seem to be loose. They are a little rusty, but I am thinking of doing a 1" body lift. In that case I'll be replacing all the bolts anyway. I wonder if they include the 1" spacers and the rubber donut that go under the washers and bolt heads. I'm missing one of the rubber donuts.

If you are lifting it anyway, you should consider polyurethane.
These kits include all bushings needed plus the washers and bolts. I just bought a 'total kit' which has body mounts, tie rod ends, and leaf spring bushings

What did this kit cost and where did you get it. I need to replace my tie rod ends anyway. My leaf spring bushings are new though. Did you get 3 tie rod ends, or did you get all 4? even the pitman tie rod assembly?

mine was only about 50 bucks from 4wd hardware, but mine is an older jeep.
Yours will run more like 130, but you'll get bushings for leaf springs, body mounts, sway bar, 4 tie rod ends, pinion bar snubber. See for yourself at 4wd.com, the 1 inch lift is on same page (178). Before you buy, check out quadratec.com as well for thier kit.

I see that kit. I don't think I'll need all that stuff because I got new spring busings already and I'll be getting all new tie rod ends soon too. So, all I need it the body bushings.

Thanks,
