Valve cover bolt and driveshaft strap bolt size...

Can anybody tell me what size these are? I need two valve cover bolts (fastens valve cover to the head) and two drive shaft strap bolts (fastens straps to hold driveshaft to the rear axle). I took one of each to compare to hardware stores and ended up losing them.

Thanks!

I'd hit the junkyard and swipe a couple.

Driveshaft bolts are 3/8-24 UNF iirc, I'm not sure on the valve cover bolts. They should be the same on any 4.0 though.

yeah... you're correct. My mistake.

I think 5-90's page has the valve cover bolt size but I am not sure, it's already been posted.

The valve cover bolts are 1/4-20 on my 2000. I'd imagine they're the same for any 4.0.
