Need new body mount bolts. HELP

I installed new prothane poly body mounts and they are smaller in thickness compared to the OEM mounts. Therefore, the OEM bolts are now too long. Wife accidentily threw out my old bolts thinking they were trash.

So, my questions are...

1. Does anyone know what size bolts I will need (length and thread count)
2. Do I need to use automotive grade bolts or can I just buy some bolts from the hardware store?

1. Not sure on size...if your bolts are too long just use them to measure what length you need.
2. Bolts from a hardware store will be fine. I used Grade 8 bolts for the body and roll cage (ones with 5 lines in a star-type shape on the head).

I used 1/2-13 grade 8 bolts for my body mounts.

I thought the two rear pairs took 7/16, and they were all 14 thread.
The front three pairs are 1/2 though.
I'll have to go out and check.

I made some spacers out of trimmed down hockey pucks and washers when I did mine because I had to drill all new holes (YJ tub -> CJ frame). Worked out just fine.
