Lost driveshaft and transmission bolts

Someone please help!! I took my driveshaft out, and started removing bolts to drop the transmission, I was working outside on it, and it started to pour down raining. I put all bolts in a box, and placed under the carport. Unfortunately I have a great dane who likes to eat everything, and she took the box off and demolished it. I was only able to recover 1 bolt for the transmission. Please someone tell me where I can order new bolts for Trans and driveshaft! Also need bolts for starter, and alternator. I've checked rock auto, advanced, napa, even ford-parts.Com. I'm not seeing any listing for just the bolts... I know they are metric, just no idea what I need! Help guys!

Cheapest answer would be to go to a pull parts junk yard and just find another ranger to pull the bolts off go to more than one and you can just pull out the easy ones to get too.

Thanks for the quick response!! Unfortunately I work out of town and don't have very much free time to go to a junk yard. So I had to take the more expensive route and re order them. A pain in the neck that was, I had to speak to 3 of Fords "expert mechanics" before one finally gave me the ford parts number, then was told the parts were obsolete. So I had to spend another 4 or so hours calling different ford dealerships until I finally got in touch with one, who took the time to locate a dealer with the bolts and give me their contact info. Advice to self for future refrence, put bolts in box, then put box in truck... lol. Thanks again man.
