1999 Wranger Sahara 6Cyl Can't Find A/C Condenser That Fits

VIN: 1J4FY49S0XP447387
1999 Jeep Wrangler Sahara 4.0L 6 Cylinder
The A/C Condenser OEM part is discontinued. I am trying to replace my condenser and the popular auto parts stores keep sending me one, I think the same one, that is too short and the female liquid line too far back and the side trim shield doesn't fit properly over the inlet and outlet tubing. The bolts are like almost an inch off at the bottom when properly mounted at the top.
Jeep Dealer says this was the OEM part number 55037482AD. The replacements look similar in design they just don't fit. In order to force the installation I have to mount the replacement condensers under the grill and bolt from the top instead of sitting on top with the brackets.. I then have to manually bend the liquid a/c line tubing down and rotate forward to reach the inlet on the condenser and also have to cut a slit in the side shield to get it to sit and connect with its trim pin.
Has anyone else ran into this and what did you do? Is there a part our there that really fits as they state it does?

All the condensers I have used are about the same. I put the bottom bolts in first, finger tight. Then I pull the top brackets into place and put those bolts in. Then tighten all 4 bolts down. I’ve never had a problem when I bolt them in place like that...

Both 7-4826 and 1K600253 cross reference over to Omix 17950.03 or Crown 55036366, which shows dimensions of 27x19x10 inches. I believe what you actually need is an Omix 17950.17 which is 27.75x23x6.75 inches.
