08 Diff cover bolts

As part of my 60k maintenance, I am getting ready to do an overhaul on my fluids. I already bought my 08 differential cover and now realize that I need some longer bolts... Any idea what the length of those bolts are? Or, better yet, what the part number is for them? I can't find them in the parts lookup... Thanks!

That's kind of what I was thinking, Scott. Appreciate it!

Have you actually installed an 08 aluminum cover? The original bolts are 3/8" too short. You can't even get a thread started with them. The bolts are 1/4" x 1-1/8" to 1-1/4". I used stainless steel socket head cap screws. They weren't cheap but added a slight bling factor to the install and insured no rust when it's time to change that oil again.

Thanks, Matt. Did you get them from a hardware store or where did you get them?

Just about any hardware store with specialty bins will have them Shawn. I tried Home Depot first because they were the closest thing to me but they don't carry them. I actually even had trouble getting the right length at the hardware store. They only had like 4 of the 1-1/8" bolts. The rest I bought were 1-1/4 and 1-1/2" that I trimmed a little to fit.

It may even be easiest just to order them from McMaster-Carr, Grainger or somebody like that. My problem was I waited until I needed them to look them up.
