Default Longer studs for t-case?

I'm wondering if AutoZone/Murrys/Nappa would carry longer studs if i decided to drop my t-case? Anyone know?

A drop kit will come with them. Basically, you get rid of the 2 studs and 2 shrot bolts and switch to 4 longer bolts. If you aren't gettting a kit, you'll need to match up the bolt size and get 4 bolts long enough.

What vehicle, YJ, TJ, XJ, CJ, SJ, J-truck, MJ?

I know a YJ is 1/2" and probally about 1.5" stock, but they have a conical shaped bolt head to mate in the T-case.

I welded some box tube onto my crossmember, and enlarged the crossmember holes , and bottom of the box to allow a socket to fit.

I reused the original hardware (studs love to break!)

I had a spare crossmember if I wanted to switch back

Sorry, I don't; when I lifted my wife's XJ, I got a kit with the lift. As somebody stated above, you can take out one of the bolts, go to the hardware store and figure out the size, then just get bolts that are 3/4-1 inch longer (depending on the size of your drop)

well i'm not living at home, i'm at school, so i can't really just yank one out and get another, i would need to get one out, then hope to god that someone has one, so that i can get it back together in a day while home. Thats why i'm trying to find the size out, because then i can get everything squared away on what i need, so when i go home i can get right to work and not have to do the "working on Jeep Runnaround"
