My husband said to tell you that on 2 separate occasions junk yards have located the wrong bolt for the same exact jeep and they were not only to big a bolt that sensor required 2 bolts very strange
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Just seems like no one really knows the specs on the bolt they tell us wrong everytime when we try and find the size thread etc. When I tell someone I just need a bolt to fix it they act like I'm stupid, this crap has made us go insane its crazy

Thanks,
I was going to have you use www.car-part.com and fill in the info because it does a nationwide search of salvage yards that have the part. I was hoping to find a yard that had the cam sensor and call them and ask them if they would sell the sensor and bolt together....but i didnt find that sensor under "sensor" drive train, but it sure wouldnt hurt to call one of them and you might find a nice guy go out and get the measurements at least.....i'm trying hard for ya!
I wish we had one in the shop and i could tell you real quick but we sure cant remember the specs on all bolts...lol
let me know if that helps at all
