Anybody know what size bolts for mounting the hitch. I tried the hardware store but they didn't have the right threads. Also when I look under the hood where the relays go, the brown one is alreay there, but the slot where the other tow relay goes doesn't have anything for the relay to plug into. The wiring is there at the rear.

I can't tell you what size they are, but I know they are hard to find. I while back I found some at a specialty bolt store and they fit tight. You may be better off going to the stealership for bolts.

Good Luck

Make sure you put a little anti-sieze on them(the hitch bolts) and torque them to factory spec's...Maybe someone here knows the torque spec's, but you could ask the dealer who sold you the bolts.
Even if you find the correct size bolts(I keep thinking 12mm 1.25 pitch) you need the correct grade. I'm sure it's no lower then a 10.9
The grade will be stamped on the head of the bolt.
