2000 Sahara TJ - Center Console Bolts

I have crawled a bunch of threads with no goo answer. I called a local dealership today and they said when they look it up it says not serviced so they could not tell me size or any helpful information. I need to bolt down my center console it has none of the screws/bolts in and its not sturdy. Can anyone tell me the sizes I will need and where a good place to get replacements would be.

I'd no one answers I can pull one of mine tomorrow evening...
Check the pull out bins at Lowe's, I do know they have a 10 mm head and are about 3/4" long

Do you mean the screw size indicated as 4 in the diagram?
They are hex flange head M6.3 x 1.8 x 25.4.

Is the bolt size for this really crucial?

Unless I'm missing something, seems like you could use practically anything.

Yup. I would at least get the same threading though. Maybe some washers if needed.

Yep it's #4 in that diagram above. I would not be opposed to using something that fits even if it was not OEM. I'm not very savvy so I don't know where to begin as far as size goes.

They are hex flange head M6.3 x 1.8 x 25.4.

Can anyone tell me what I could look for that fits the above dimensions?

Lowe's sells flange head bolts possible the closest would be 1/4-20

A 1.8mm thread pitch would be 14 threads per inch. Being coarser than UNC you may be able to find 1/4" self tapping screws with that sort of thread pitch.

The brackets aren't very thick
re-threading would be easily done

I always keep any loose or leftover nuts and bolts. If you have any friends or are close with your mechanic I'd bet they may have the same bucket of nuts-n-bolts laying around. Any hardware store would have a wide variety of the stuff. They may be the same size that hold the dash bezel in place. Take one of those out and see if it works. Although, if you lost the OE bolts chances are the bolt hole has widened. You may need a size bigger.

Had a look at the acme screws (10mm hex head) and sheet metal screws (#3 posi drive) in work today. The size 14 screw thread is 1/4" in diameter and 14 tpi, which is as close to M6.3 x 1.8 as you'll get.
