More stripped torx bolts?

Got some windshield light mounts yesterday and low and behold one bolt on either side of my windshield stripped when I tried to remove them.

Anyone know what the thread is on these and is it something I can pick up at home depot?

Are you asking about replacements? If so, every time I take one of those damn torx out I replace it with an actual bolt. attached is a picture. I like the look better with bolts as opposed to torx. I originally bough a bunch of torx to replace the ones I stripped before I went to bolts. Got them from Sears Hardware. I will check tonight to see if I still have the item number.

If you took one out just take it to Home Depot and match it up.That's what I did with my bumpers.

Ah the joy that is jeep ownership. I believe they are 1/4-20. I had to replace two of mine when I put my lights and mirror movers on. Tip for the future. Heat the bolts with a propane torch before trying to break them loose. It'll help break the thread lock put on at the factory and makes your work much easier!
