    Can anyone confirm the dia. and thread pitch of the rear tailgate hinge bolts with phillip head?

    I'm leaning towards 10mm with a 1.25 thread pitch, but would like someone to confirm that if you could?

    I am planning on fabricating new plates and the other sheet metal that house's the plates, I just would like to have it the same.

    Thanks, Matt
