Starting a rebuild of my stock 2010 Jeep Wrangler

Hey JF members: \
Have started to rebuild my 2010 Jeep Wrangler just one basic step up from Stock Build.
- Installed heavier starter.
- Searching for the right bumper upgrade (heavy duty, more off-road,...)
- Pricing out the heavier spark plug wires and coil pack

BUT right now, my engine is getting very hot! Part of the problem is the heat shields near the LOWER exhaust system pipes.

So I am trying to provide additional heat shield protection to my exhaust system (catalytic converters, mufflers). My original stock heat shields near the engine are falling off due to corrosion. May try to wrap them in some type of Performance tape near the Cats.

Anyone have an idea where I can get the heat shields near the lower engine section where the starter (driver side) and the engine ground (passenger side)? Tried Jeep dealers (no available parts), salvage yards (no luck yet), MOPAR (they don't stock parts for ANY Jeep which is 10 years old or older), after-market (LKQ), the big-name parts stores (AA, AZ, PB,...), or eBay (they have the exhaust manifold heat shields, but nothing else). Cannot find ANY heat shields out there anywhere!

Anyone have any luck in replacing their stock heat shields? (see photos)

Thanks for any info.
