Well, I was at work this morning and I guess I should read more before posting. I missed the idea of the bolt that holds the clevis on the forwards support rod (4748). That is supposed to be the same bolt as the one that holds the mid bracket on as you mentioned.

The (2) bolts supplied in the 91-03 forwards kit (to replace the OEM left mid bracket bolts) are shorter than the OEM ones to account for not having that chunk of metal there to hold down.

After checking my instruction sheets, this is the same (clevis to support mounting bolt) on the 91-03 model forwards (4748).
Page 3

The -08 parts book shows this same bolt for the passenger peg mounts.

Easy peasy, take this bolt off the forward support stud or passenger footpeg mount and match it for the mid bracket.

Or, do as Folkie said, "They're: # 4748, ⅜" - 16 UNC × 1⅛" socket head, grade 8".

Post back if you can with the official length used.
