Rear Diff cover bolts

Anybody know the size of these? Iíve only seen female star heads...not a male version like these. Too easy to use a normal freakin bolt I guess. Ugggg



Iím under the truck now...thought I was going to do this quickly. So much for that. Seems like I canít ever get the search to work on Tapatalk either. Always tells me I have to wait between searches and then doesnít find/show anything.

So ďexternal torxĒ is the proper term it appears.

Since you figured out how to take them off without using a store bought direct fitting wrench you get a few extra points on your man card today!

Weird...my truck has regular bolts on the diff cover. I do own a set of snap on reverse torx sockets though.
