    Anyone know the size of the bolts that hold the crossmember to the frame that holds up the transmission? There are 4 bolts, they appear to be about 4 or 4.5" long and maybe a 12 or 10mm thread, with 14mm heads.

    I don't have a Toyota dealership within 100 miles of me, so I'd like to just go to Napa and see what they have, or order the right bolt online... or if anyone here has a parts truck with one, let me know. I was under my truck today (1999 4x4 w/ 2.7L engine) and noticed I have one bolt of the 4 missing.

    Also... friendly reminder to check your fluids. Both transfer cases were very low so I did a full drain and refill. Truck seems to be happy now!
