buying AFE exhaust to go with H&S, what thread for sensors?

I'm ordering the AFE full downpipe back exhaust and my H&S is on the way, can anyone tell me what thread the dpf sensors use since I will just plug them and leave the sensors in my dpf?
Also, can anyone tell me if the afe exhaust has the pressure sensor nipple as well as the 2 threaded bungs?
Thanks

well from having to go through this myself I can tell you, 3 of them are 12mm fine thread, get the shortest bolts you can find. I think I ended up with a 12mm x 30 and it worked just fine, then there is the one crazy can't find the right size bolt. I thing it is the pressure sensor but I'm sure someone can correct me on this. I could not find a bolt that fit it exactly and this is going to 4 different fastener speciality shops. I ended up getting a 14mm fine thread which will thread in just a little bit, maybe 1\4 of the way, and a matching nut to get a good jam thread effect going on. It has worked perfectly for me and does not ruin the threads on that oddball thread, which should be a 13mm fine thread if you are so lucky to find a shop that carries one. Good luck and bribe a buddy to help you lol

Ohh yea I used the afe pipes and they have bungs for all of the sensors, I just unplugged them all, make sure you get some dielectric grease to fill the sensor plugs left on the truck so they don't get all jacked up

I covered mine with plastic and zip tied them. Dielectric grease sounds like a better plan.

Thanks for the tip.

The bolt size is 12mm x 1.25 thread pitch, buy the shortest you can find which will probably be around 20mm long. Let us know if we can help!
