Bought a new hood,what type rubber bumpers are used?

I bought a new aftermarket hood for my 95 Yj and it only has a single hole on each side for a windshield bumper. My original hood has 2 holes on each side. What type bumper can I use? Who sells them at a decent price?

Single hole? That almost sounds like a TJ hood instead of a YJ.

How about using a rubber bumper like the ones mounted on your tailgate for the spare tire to rest against? You can get these from NAPA for a few dollars. That's my only guess.

Yeah, the hood was new and still in the box. I bought it on CL. The label listed the correct year/model for my Jeep but like I said it only has a single hole on each side. I have no problem using that type of rubber bumper. I'll try Napa, thanks

Called Napa and they knew nothing of this part. I even asked if it was in the help section. No luck. Do you have a part #?
