Default Tamperproof t-40 torx bit

anybody got one of the star-shaped tools used to take the bolts from the cap on a FSB so it can come off? JBG doesn't have them.
Looking for someone local so i can pick up.

Does it look like these? Should just be "standard" torx bits. You should have a set for yourself with the 92-96, you'll need them.

My 90 had "bolt" heads, I think the 92+ went to Torx.

Looks like they're "tamper proof torx" with a post in the center, you can get a "security" torx bit set from harbour freight <$10

No stores seem to have one of these, ive been to NAPA, auto zone, murrays, advanced, Larry's in GC, Harbour Freight, and J&L industrial.
my dad has a set of tamperproofs he ordered, but they are all too small.
figured i'd try once more to see if anyone on here has one for sale.

A freakin center punch makes that bolt no longer tamper proof. Then you can use a regular T-40 torx bit.

Hi Travis, my name's Mike, I live across the street from you and disassembled 2 Jeeps last winter. I have plenty of torx and tamper proof torx bits. You can come over anytime. Also, Autozone, Harbor Freight, and Sears carry these, I promise.

Take out one of the torx, take them to lowe's, and purchase hex bolts of the same size. No big deal.
