    Mine has standard 9/16" bolts. Almost every bolt on my Blazer is a 9/16", but I'm not sure, because that's 11 years of difference.

    it's a torx bit, the security kind. i've must've bought a half-dozen already. i get them at monument auto, kragen, etc. the store will usually let you take it outside to see if it's the right one. if i knew where one of mine was, i'd see if it had a size on it.
    and while i'm thinking of it, just go to sears and get a craftsman one. my last one is starting to twist at the end.

    Lots of guys also, once they remove it for the first time, replace the bolts with standard SAE bolts, much like the earlier Blazers had, such as 9/16". Makes it easier for the next time you do the topless thing.........
