It's a CJ Weld86, no grommets. I'll try a M8x1.5. Just don't want to ride around with a very heavy skid plate zip tied lol.

What size are the forward skid plate bolts?

Installed a bunch of new upgrades to my 990R including the Weld86 skidplate and somehow lost both (!?) of the forward bolts. The nearby storm drain is my #1 suspect.
