Does anyone know the bolt size to attach the banana bar to the upper cross member? I think there were 3 or 4 bolts that attach the bracket to the body. Just looking for accurate size and bolt count.
Thanks,
msp177

3 bolts per side if you have 2 upper bars.

I think they might be 5/8 inch, but I can check.
picture shows holes with only one bolt in one of the holes

Yeah, I think 5/8 sounds about right. Do you recall the length? I was thinking 1" - 1.5". Not sure what it came with.

Thanks,
