Where do these brackets go? 77 CJ5

Starting to put my 77 back together. I have these 2 brackets that I don't remember where they go. Took hundreds of pictures, but none of this part!! I believe it came off the frame.

They aren't the door striker or hinge. There are no holes in the short leg.

How thick are they? Body thick or frame thick?

Look to be around 1/8" thick.

Backing reinforcements for door hinges, spare carrier or hood latches? Dunno, guessing because I have never seen anything similar on mine.

I found out from another Jeep member. They are restrictor plates for the engine mounts. I would guess so the engine doesn't fall if the rubber separates.

That's interesting... especially since when the mounts fail the bracket goes thru the oil filter on mine...
