Transfer case skid bolts?

Are the bolts holding the transfer case skid plate to the frame the same size on all TJ's and LJ's?? I know companys make different skids for 97-02 and 03-06, but are the actual bolts the same size (thread pitch and bolt diameter) just in a slightly different location?? Thanks,

--Matt

If you're planning on removing them, do yourself a favor and tighten them a bit before you start loosening them. Trust me. Or... maybe you already figured that out and this is why you need some?

I'm asking this because I will be removing my stock t-case bolts to install a RE t-case drop after I install my RE 3.5 to get me home b4 I can install my SYE. The t-case drop and bolts are from an '04 LJ via RE but I just wanna make sure they will fit my 2000. I dont wanna get to the install point and realize I need different bolts, that might kill me. Anyone positive the thread pitch are the same on all year TJ's 97-06? I realize the heads of the bolts might be different but are the thread pitches the same? Sorry for the rant and confusion.

-Matt

Is there some reason that you think you won't be able to reuse the stock bolts?

Are we talking about the 6 bolts that hold the skid up? Or, the 4 small nuts that hold the tranny mount to the skid?

Bolts for a '04 will not work on a '00

97-02 are SAE and the 03-06 are metric. Sorry, I don't know the pitch or thread. I pulled one out and took it with me to the local hardware store.
