Probably only goes up to M10 or M12, can't tell, since the bastards didn't detail the contents.

Follow-up Post:

Most tapping on the bulkhead should be M6 and perhaps M8. You will want some dies too to clean galv off the grounding lugs etc.

It is sears. What is the biggest bolt on the bulkhead? I can jerry rig the big ones on the tire carrier.

edit: not concerned about grounding lugs. A hacksaw should clean them up.

Hmmm....

The usual metric die set will do the job but the only one you might need extra is the one for the seat belt bolts witch has a finer thread. And keep in mind those little set aren't top quality so work very gently. They are good to re-tap holes after galvanizing but in you intend to do allot of you can get your self complete kits including starters taps, intermediate taps, and finishing taps.

Yeah, the set will work for most M6 & M8 stuff - but you'll need m16 or something for the tire carrier.
