Well I cleaned up and powder coated the old pieces and I think all I need is the rubber pieces.

Why are there two washers between the two rubber isolators?
I don't remember having those on mine in that configuration. I have mine setup bottom up with the bolt, lock washer, heavy fender washer, thin bushing washer, rubber isolator, Jeep frame, rubber isolator, washer w/sleeve, grill encapsulated nut.

Which is the correct way.

That was that way it came apart (with the two washers). That does not mean it is correct.

You did not have anything between the top rubber isolator and the grill?

The heavy washers on the inside of my set up "fit" the metal sleve and I believe they were there to correct the height.

And I did not have a lock washer on the bottom, it was a heavy flat washer.

Left that part out when I first posted, now corrected.
Yes, above the rubber isolator is the washer with sleeve attached.

NAPA says no go at the moment. They are going to do a search and see what they can come up with and let me know at the end of the week. Plus, the guy I usually deal with was not in today and I may have to wait until he is present in order to use his parts search expertise. That one person has helped me in the past to track down parts that everyone else says cannot be found. Sorta of a hobby for him and he always came through most of the times.

Kinda dealt with a parts monkey today that works the weekend if you know what I mean.

I know exactly what you mean. I had the same experience the first time I visited NAPA. The last time I got a "Good" guy who spent time tring to find the part. I bolted the old bushing in today for the time being and will try Mc Master and see if I can come up with one that will work.

Thanks for the effort. If your good guy comes through let me know.

I ended up reusing the old one. Never found a new one. If you have to you could make one.

I ordered this kit off ebay. It is poly not rubber but it came with pretty much all the bushings you need. does not have the sleeves and such though. http://www.ebay.com/itm/110815500895...84.m1439.l2649

Nice.

I wanted rubber as the rest of the mounts on the Jeep are rubber and you should not mix (poly and rubber) as they flex different.

Will you be ordering it? If so would you post back if they are the same size? That would only be half of the two parts needed, Do you have a suggestion for the second part?

Thanks. I was forced to use the original parts when I put it all back together
