You need a torx socket to go on the end of your rachet. Might as well get a whole set since there are many other bolts on a jeep that have a torx head. If you want to get just the one for the bumper you'll need a number 55 torx socket. You can get these at any parts store or even hardware stores too.

I always replace the torx with standard bolts whenever possible. You'll wish you had a couple of years down the road when you
want to remove them. Especially if you are near a corrosive enviroment. And don't forget the neverseize.

Stainless with anti-seize...............

Amen. Torx bolts are the worst things ever invented. I'm gradually replacing every one I have with a "real" bolt.
