OEM Hitch Bolts

I purchase a OEM hitch from craiglist without any bolts or mounting equipment. I've done quite of bit of searching on forums, and I know i can get the L brackets for the hitch from Relentesstaco. However, does anyone the size of the bolts that go through the bumper into the hitch? Toyota calls them M-14 bolts. Can i get them at Home Depot or Lowes?

M-14 bolts are 14 mm in size on the thread of bolt, not the head. Be sure that you purchase Grade 5 bolts ( 3 hash marks on head) or Grade 8 bolts (5 hash marks on head). If the hash marks are not present, DO NOT BUY THEM. Get washers and lock washers as well.

Is there a NAPA or Fastenal in your area?

Fastenal will be cheaper and have more lengths available. Specify Grade 5 or grade 8 bolts.

yes, I would go to Fastenal, or try to order from them, and use all grade 8, and they will last for years.
