so you know the two bolts for the tails that you can see when you open the trunk? Those are one size. When you peel back the trunk mat to take off the bolt from the rear of the headlight, those are a different size. Then all the bolts for the headlights are a different size! and i dont have a huge toolbox so of course i wouldnt have the right ones

All you need is a basic tool set that you can get from any store, I suggest getting a quality brand, not some made in Asia crap so that they will last and not strip out. I feel you though on my Ram on some parts not only are they different sizes the hardware changes from metric to SAE on the same part!!
