Metric thread !
If you find a Bolt Store let us all know.

I got mine through an On-Line Ford Parts Store and saved some but not much.

They are a metric standard or course thread. Not sure on which. Pull one clean it up and take it to a good hardware store.

If you order anything other than OEM, get stainless. Replace the nut plates too. They go bad just as the bolts do.

Chances are the JY pieces, free or not, may be in the same general condition yours are.
You may have to pull a lot of them until you get a decent set but it may be worth it.
Buy a "Thread Chaser Tap” the same thread as the bolts; this tool will allow you to run it through the Nut portion of the mounting hardware and then use a good anti-seize product on the threads.
I use a Copper anti-seize product all the time and I do not have a problem with any bolts coming loose, just in case you were thinking that.
If you need to or feel it is necessary, consider a Nut on the end of the bolt but do not think it is.

Don't know if it's been solved yet, but all bodybolt(at least 98+) are M12-1.75. The front 2 bedbolts are a bit longer than the back four. What those measurements are, I havn't a clue. BUT....for the 1" BL, it takes two 150mm(front bolts) and four 130mm(rear 4 bolts), take off approx 30mm for stock length.
