Not sure if this has been answered before, no luck with search. Picked up a carrier from CL, complete except for bolts. Need the ones that mount the bracket to the tailgate itself, anyone know what size/ where I can get them?
Thanks for the advice.

1995. Missing the 3 bracket mounting bolts, and I think there's some sort of strike plate at the bottom held on by either bolts or plastic push pins?

EXCERPTS:

Swingaway Bolts for '78-96 Broncos
and;
"...Virtually all factory fasteners are Gr.5, but they're substantially better than typical Gr.5 hardware. The ones for the swingaway are also very distinct. Those bolts have 10mm head, a relatively small integral washer, & 8mmx1.25mm threads about 30mm long with an angled slot in the tip for self-tapping. Common hardware bolts won't fit because the heads are too large. Hex cap screws probably will fit, but they won't look right. The right ones CAN be found in JYs because they're the same for all '78-96 Broncos w/external spare. Similar bolts are used in other places on the body, and on many other Ford/L/M products.

The first two 47104 pads are clear, like the self-adhesive laminating covers for cards. The last one with 2 pushpins is black self-adhesive plastic. They inevitably stretch & wrinkle because the rubber bumper sticks to it. If you want any of them to last, you have to keep that bumper lubed with a little silicone grease so it can slide on the pad. ..."

Btw, try to clean any debris and rust out of the holes and maybe some abit-seize on bolts threads; I had soaked my bolts with PB and home brew rust penetrant (50% mix of acetone and trans fluid), but one bolt head snapped off.

Mine is missing the little handle that allows it to unlatch from the tail gate bracket. Does anyone have any pictures from many directions? I can make my own, I just need to see how it's made so I can copy it.

To be honest, I'm not sure if it was there to begin with. It should be near the top where the tire carrier loops downward, but there's no sign of where the handle should have been. It's not rusty and I don't see where it could have been cut off.

these are so plentiful in the junk yards, it should be very easy to get whatever you need there. Every bronco I have seen has still had the carrier on it. Might not be the case where you are, but here they are readily available.

Did your truck originally have a carrier?

If not, they are very difficult to add, to the point of not really worth it. (Requires welding a support into the passenger rear quarter panel)

Already had one, P/O removed for a "cleaner" look, never made it back from Arizona. curiously, the quarter panel brackets are still on the truck, just need to remove the hinge pins and put it on. Can't believe 3 bolts could be so difficult to find.

Thanks Miesk. That's exactly what I was looking for. Mine is missing that bar. I also have a piece of square tube that will fit it perfectly.
