Default 8.8 Yoke Flange bolts

I have the size/ thread pitch one them, but I have been informed that they are a 12-point head. do they have to be the 12 point head? or are they specially hardened? [not at hardware store kinda bolt?]

So long as they are grade 10.9 you should be fine.

using a std bolt in that thread size uses a much larger hex head, makes it very difficult to loosen tighten. The hex is larger enough that a socket will not fit do to clearance of the flange so only an open end wrench can be used.

so, basically a regular hex head 12mmX1.75 bolt will work, w/ the proper grade rating

17mm? I just got done putting an 8.8 in my TJ. I ended up using the stock bolts but while at Unlimited Offroad buying my flange adapter I bolt the bolts for it too because I didn't know if I had the stock ones still. They weren't that big. I didn't try them to see clearance issues, but I know they weren't 17 mm. I'm guessing 14 or 15 at most
