    Hi folks,

    I recently bought a 2005 SR5. Changing the oil today, I saw both bolts holding the skid plate to the frame near the oil pan are missing, so the plate rattles. Would anyone be able to help me identify the threading so I can pick up generics at a hardware store?

    Thanks,
    Matt

    "Threading" doesn't matter just get a nut/bolt that fits the diameter. Preferably stainless or something that wont rust easily.

    "threading" or thread pitch does matter.

    OP - I think it's an M8x1.25. I'm unsure of the length but they are fairly long, like 25 or 30mm. Forgive me if I'm totally wrong. =\

    Curious...Why does the thread matter on a skid plate?

    Because there are weldnuts at each bolt location and those weldnuts are threaded.

    M8 1.25 20mm worked great, thanks. Probably as short as 10mm would be fine, too.
