snwchris True the "Clamz" are just protection for the body mounts.

Try Sniper Fabrication or Trent Fabrication

Thosec clams look like a good idea though to protect the brackets though.

I've got the part numbers to the factory frame brackets though...

5003831AA for the middle bracket and rear-most side frame bracket
5003836AA for the front-most side frame bracket

now I just need to get the bushings/sleeves and bolts

cutting off and raising body mount brackets?

I need new TJ body mount brackets... the six that run along the side of the jeep frame rail. We are cutting off the old ones and will weld new ones an inch higher up on the frame (no more body lift). My fabricator can make new ones but would be nice and convenient if they were premade and I could just order them. Anyone know where new body mount brackets can be found?

Thanks,
Ben
