    Need to know the 6 bolts that keep on the front skid plate, lost mine and not sure what size bolts to buy at the local hardware store
    I think the front 4 all match and the back 2 were smaller if I remember?

    IIRC, m8x1.25 for the front.
    Don’t remember the length, maybe 20mm?

    Never had the rear off, can’t help you there.

    BTW, the OEM bolts are not worth buying.
    They like to break off pretty easily.

    I just replaced my "rear" skid plate. The bolts are 8M x 1.25. You can use probably up to 30mm in length.

    The thing that I hate about a lot of parts store bolts is that they have weird head sizes. Like 11mm, 13mm, 15mm, etc.

    I believe that’s correct.
    OEM bolt it 12mm head IIRC, if you go aftermarket, the head is 13mm I think?
