Throughout the truck, most of them are metric, or can be interchanged with a standard equivalent.

You can damn near strip the interior down to bare bones with an 5.5, 7, 8, 10, 11, 13, 15 and 18mm, and T50 and T60 Torx sockets.

Thanks!
I'm a newly registered member who's been lurking around here for some time. And I signed up just to answer this question.

For all the overly ****, like myself, I measured up the bolt head. It is positively a 16mm. A 5/8 obviously works but per ISO/SAE specs, it's a 16. My bolt head measured 15.99mm on one flat and 16mm on the other two. A 16mm must measure between 15.73mm and 16mm. If it were a 5/8", it needs to measure in at a minimum of .612" to a max of .625". Mine measured up at .629, .631 and .6315........ too big.

By the way, I searched this question because I was too lazy to slide under the truck with two wrenches in hand. I just wanted to grab the one wrench......... isn't that about the saddest thing you ever heard?

Have a good one,
Pete
