    Welcome @rickwommack ...not sure what kind of hard riding breaks those bolts but a high grade bolt of similar length should hold her til you replace them driveshafts. How is the rest of the suspension? Got pics?

    Welcome to the forum :jeepwave:

    I agree the bolts are common hardware - use grade 5 or 8.
    Bent driveshafts? I don't want to know... Ca Ching - hope the attachment helps but I would just use
    common shoppe fasteners.

    My vote is for a grade 8, it is possible that poor quality bolts were installed. Make sure the bolts are long enough to get a full thread length contact.
