Front bumper question

On the stock front bumper, can anyone tell me what size bolts are used?

Not completely sure but I think it's m10 x 120 with 1.5 pitch

I removed my ARB bumper with the intent to place the stock bumper/a-bar on. The 4 black 10mm bolts that were used with the ARB, I assume are the original bolts for the stock bumper. When I dropped the bolts in place...they literally dropped in place without having to screw into anything. Am I missing something? Are the bolts not long enough and should actually travel through to screw on a nut underneath?

I wouldn't assume that the bolts on the ARB are the same as the stock.. I'm not sure on the 90, but on my D2, i've had a TJM and RTE bumper, and both came with their own bolts..

They are M10. They thread into a plate that is tapped for both bolts. A PITA arrangement when they rust in place.

I changed mine for grade 8, 7/16" UNF with normal nuts. In order to fit them I hole sawed the bottom to give enough access for a socket to reach the nuts.

You are missing the nut plates that go on the bottom of the frame.
They are likely still clipped to your ARB bumper.
The frame itself is not threaded.

My 94 had individual nuts not plates. It is a real pita without those plates.

Thank you John B. and Mike (ECR)! The nut plates were on the ARB Bumper.

Included pics of the nut plates and the a-bar installed.
