body plug question?

this should be an easy question for 1 of you savy yj owners. im a 1st time owner and have 2 of these 95 yj wranglers. both of them have a small 1" drain plug in the passenger drivers floor board, and they both also have a 3"(aprox) rubber/plastic plug right in the middle of the front passenger floor board. i am missing the 3" plug in 1 of the jeeps, and when i go to websites to find that plug it always lists the 1" or a set of 13 of the 1" plugs, but i can find no mention of the bigger plug. i tried typing in inspection plug, drain plug and neither of them come up with anything. what is the correct term for this so i can get 1? the local dodge jeep dealer doesnt show it on his computer either. just the 1" plug. any help would be appreciated. thankyou

thanks for the reply fellas. seams really odd that i would have 2 jeeps the same year that have them, 1 was gotten from hawaii, and the other jeep from tennesee. they are perfectly cut circles with an slight inset in the floor pan. the 1 with the plug in it i have recently sold, or i would take a pic and post it. i could take 1 of the 1 i still have and show how it appears to be a factory indent and stamped hole in the floor. there are several indents about 1/4" wide that come down the floor pan from the firewall to the hole mentioned. they stop at a perfectly round indentation around the hole(wich is a 1/4" wide and perfect circle) and then continue back under the passenger seat. the hole now that i think of it is big enough to stick my hand thru, as i would pull the plug and use a wisk broom to get the dirt out of the floor pan.

Its factory.

They make "Knockout plugs" for use in Residential/Commercial Electricity.You wont find a 3" at home depot but a good Electric supply company should be able to get them

A 3" shipping plug for black pipe/ pickel pipe will fit. but they are not black, bright yellow/orange, so they don't get left in the pipe when installing them.
Hope this helps.

I got these plugs from the Jeep dealer. Two of them cost right around $15, and the pop right in. They only came unpainted so a litle ratle can and the look real good.

tim2 ,do you have a part number for this plug? the dealer was unable to find it on his dealer computer. for those of you that said there isnt 1 peel your carpet back and take a look. if this will let me ad a picture i will attach it. i should be a ble to get this from a dealer as it is a factory plug. not a makeshift part from home depot

a 3inch plug sounds kind of rediculous. im sure a piece of duck tape or something along those lines might be easier
