I talked with him yesterday. He said he had Poly bushings but didnt have the radiator bushing in rubber. I wanted to find a rubber one but may end up having to go with Poly.....

I've also been looking for one for a while, with no luck.
I have extra body mounts and was thinking of cutting one down to fit if someone would be so kind to post the thickness of the grill bushing.
Thanks.

I tired of going in circles trying to find all the bits for that mount, and ordered a pack from eBay. I wont have my front end back together for a couple weeks, but I will note back on the fit. Hope this saves someone else some time.

Nice find, I ordered one myself! When I put mine back together I ended up using the old bushings

Thanks, I would have preferred to reuse parts, but unfortunately my rubber pieces were tore up a bit from the rotted frame tab cutting in to them. Dropping $40 on a couple rubber patties was a little more than I thought it would be to fix that, but it's worth it to move on.

I think the ones on eBay are the ones that BlkCJ7Laredo sells. He lives in the same town in NY as the seller on eBay does.

Yep, and you can see the additional grill bushing in their kit #5462446K in the photo below.



That's a first and it's about time!

Lets not let Crown steal all the thunder here.. If it weren't for all of us nutty JF'ers here pushing and providing prototypes we may have never gotten this stuff to production. JK's are cool and all, but we must keep the CJ alive

I agree and I know someone from Crown reads the forum for R&D research on their products that they provide. Now if they would only cut down the tube sleeves to the proper OEM length it would be a very good kit IMHO. Only two tube sleeves need to be the length that they provide and they are for the two front toe boards. The rest of the body bushings, but not including the grill, are shorter.
