Keith,

Those are the exact bumpers that I ordered and I got them from McMaster-Carr. Like I said, you would have to use a #8 screw instead of the #10 that the OEM used. That's about the only difference in them.

I will give McMaster-Carr a call on this to see if they can get the 2093-W from their supplier.

Couldn't you just drill the washer hole out a little bit to make them like OEM?

I will give that a try. I also have a drill for putting holes in a snowmobile track for studs that might be the right size to enlarge the recess in the rubber so the #10 screw head will sit inside the bumper like it's supposed to.

I tried modifying the bumpers from McMaster-Carr without success. The washer in them is so small that when I try to drill out it either rips it out of the rubber, or on the one that I was successful drilling once I put the screw in it deformed the bumper when screwing it down.

I have run across a source for the #2093 bumper and it's about as close to the original as you can get I think. Now I'm just waiting on the correct torx button head screws in 10-32 thread and the rubber Well-Nuts to complete the package.

The OEM is on the far left followed by the #2093 then the bumper from Mc-Master, and finally a #2092 on the far right which is 3/4" diameter and 9/32" height.

I found these. It's been a while since I tore my Jeep down... but these look like what I pulled out of the grille... 5 years ago.

Those would be the correct rubber bumper for CJ's that have the standard grille without the chrome overlay. The CJ's that have the chrome overlay grille that was standard equipment on the Laredo model has the bumpers that I pictured above that have a through hole and are held in place with a button head Torx screws and rubber Well-Nuts.

The rubber bumpers aren't available from McMaster-Carr. I found the correct ones from a place that deals in a lot of small rubber parts for older vehicles. The screws and well nuts will come from McMaster and should be here tomorrow so I can verify that the heads aren't too tall on the button head screws.

I wish you still had that bumper you pictured at the top of the thread. It looks more like the #2092 than it does the #2093

I don't know HOW I missed this thread as I had issues many years ago when mine were crushed and splitting. I ended up using the bumpstops found at the end of the vertical braces that hold up sliding shower doors. The wellnuts were destroyed upon removal or would just spin. I retained the fine threaded OEM torx bolt, and cut down the shower bumper to the correct height. The bolt fits snug fit and there is a small amount under the bolt to hold it, just no thin inside washer. Another plumbing washer underneath with a stainless nut has worked well for many years. Only the diehard CJ nuts (like us) can tell the difference.

I removed one tonight, snapped a bad cell phone pic and reinstalled.

The only thing that can't be duplicated exactly now is the screw. There is an exact match to the bumpers and also a bumper that is slightly larger diameter and height than the originals. The screw is listed as a 10-32 in 5/8" length pan head. Any current pan head you buy now sticks up above the bumper slightly so it would defeat the purpose. Instead there are Torx button head screw in that size that sits below the recess enough so it doesn't make contact. The top is more rounded than the flat originals. If you look at the first pic that weapon posted at the beginning of the thread you can see his screw head is level with the top of the bumper, which will end up tearing up the paint and rattling.

For the Well-Nut I've found that Auveco auto fasteners offers the original type that snaps in and in their catalog it even references to the original AMC part number.

I think that will be good enough to pass the eye test of even most hardcore perfectionists.

My oem screws were not pan heads but torx and yes it did seem to sit flush with the bumper. While it looks like I have misplaced the only complete OEM set I have left. I do have the screw (with no bumper) and a slightly damaged Well-Nut I can send you. Here are some more photos.

OOPS! those are huge. Sorry.

That is a 10-32 screw, but the head is flat. The parts cataloging shows it to be a pan head torx which the top would be slightly domed. Anyone know where you could get something like that?
