Finally got the bumper order in from the Jeep stealership.

The bumper is not even close to the CJ. Still looking for ones like the original Laredo in the first post.

Does anyone know the height of the original bumper? I k ow it was 5/8" diameter. I've found a few more sources for bumpers so as soon as I know original dimensions I will let everyone know where we can get them

Did you have your dealer do a nationwide search for J4006673?

Is that the actual CJ bumper number?

Called my dealer, he did a parts search and found some but the price was $14 each + shipping.

Yes, that's the correct one and the list price is $14.00. Just a FYI, that part is also used on the YJ license plate frame. I'll go out to the garage and check my YJ frame that I had on my tub to see if we can get something that is much closer at much friendlier prices.

Of course I can't find the last remaining bumper that I had. Does anyone have a quality laredo one to help BlkCJ7Laredo out on finding the height?

I found it. I went out to the garage where I had a YJ Wrangler rear license plate frame on the shelf. It uses the same bumper as the Laredo grille according to the parts catalog. Stay tuned as I think I have found a very close replacement that costs much less.

So, I ordered some rubber bumpers, torx head screws and well nuts in sizes that I thought would work for this. Unfortunately the bumpers would require some modification to work but are the correct diameter and height. The holes thru the center washer are too small if going exactly as the original was. You could use a different well nut and an 8-32 button head screw and I think they would work. The OEM used a 10-32 button head screw.

Then I ordered this:



This is the real deal, from Jeep.

I've measured these and did a lot of googling. What I have figured out is this appears to be a somewhat common item and the trade number for it is 2093-W. It is 5/8" diameter, 1/4" tall, upper bore 3/8" and lower bore and washer hole 3/16"

I have found these on ebay in white and brown but no black. I will have to call a couple of the other companies that appear to have them to inquire on pricing. It's likely that I'd have to buy at least 100 of them to be able to place an order. It will certainly beat the $14 each that Jeep wants for them, and likely be fresher rubber than these that have been sitting on dealer shelves for who knows how many years.

Now onto the screws. A standard pan head philips or torx head 10-32 screw won't work. The screw head (0.133") will be taller than the bumper and hit the hood. What you need to have is a button head torx screw which the head is slightly shorter than a standard pan head. (0.101")

I will see where we can get these from and if it does end up needing to buy 100+ of these I may take the plunge if the price isn't too prohibitive and be able to help everyone out since there appears to be a limited supply of the $14 Mopar bumpers.

McMaster-Carr.com has something very close to what you may need.

Part #9540K52 are: 5/8"D x 9/32"H x 5/32"hole. 100pcs @ $12.81

They also have Military Specification Bumpers that are made the same way but not the correct size. I have called McMaster-Carr in the past and was able to get something I needed that is not shown in there website or catalogs. They have thousands of vendors they deal with and catalogs to look up info if needed. Somebody out there makes those bumpers that you guys need and if McMaster-Carr can't get them, they probably don't exist.
