Wish I could find one around here, or the mopar one. Never seem to come across one at all. Even the wreckers I go to I never seem to find one.

For what I spent on mine and then the time it took sanding and painting it and then the mounting plates, I would've just bought a new one online. I think you can find them for $200 on eBay.

Realize you've resolved the issue already but figured I throw in a little more info on how I did it. My brush guard is a Westin ($125 new in packaging on Craigslist) and it came with the hardware. However I have an overland with front tow hooks so I didn't want to lose my recovery points. I took the stock brackets to a shop and had heavier thicker steel copies made. The originals are surprisingly stout. The same thickness as the stock hook brackets but I wanted to mount recovery hooks to them without any trepidation. I ended up cutting the original brackets to use as a backing plate to completely sandwich the steel frame with grade 8 hardware. Haven't added the hooks yet. Prob going with the inline 4 Ton generic kind you can find anywhere. The stock tow hooks and their brackets are surprisingly weak. I'm surprised we haven't heard more horror stories other than hooks opening up. If this brush guard ever comes off the brackets and frame are coming with it. Also the pics show two bolts and some non grade 8 nuts but I used all three and full grade 8 when I finished.
