Lurker - Need help identifying this missing bolt

I noticed this bold missing while doing an oil change.
I am a novice but love my astro so any help would be appreciated.

Lower Differential Mounting bolt.
No specs available.
Find a bolt and nut that fits.

I am guessing here, but I would start with an m12 or m14x80mm grade 10.9 bolt :) Might be a little longer though, have to measure.
