if I remember right there are 6 12mm bolts that hold it on. it may require rail plates also(they go inside the rail so it has bolts holes)

Depends on the brand.

i think its a combo of 3/8 bolts and 1/2 in bolts i am pretty sure 3 total to a side.

if you buy a new hitch it will be included. if not use what fits in the holes make sure to use grade 8 hardware though.

Stick with the grade 5. They are case hardened (not fully hardened only the out side). It creats a bolt that is hard but not as brittle as a fully hardend grade 8. A grade 8 bolt is very hard but brittle and are more likely to shear than bend under extreme loads. Make sure you apply the proper torque to them. Click here if you don\\\\\\\\\\'t know the torque spec.

A grade 5 bolt will still stretch and break before a grade 8 bolt by a large margin.
