The original mount, part# 82213840, is no longer made, so it is hard to find. According to my dealership, I got the last one in stock in like a 150mi radius of them, which was luckily at a dealership only about 15mi away.
Because I used the original mount, with the new bumper, I had to make a slight mod to my bumper, you can see my build here https://www.wranglerforum.com/f314/ro...l#post24052177
To help, the original mount looks like this:
The new one looks like this:
Also, there was a large batch of the new mounts that were apparently manufactured backwards. And MOPAR did nothing to recall them. Rather, they decided to let the duds get found by buyers who would basically try to install them, realize it was impossible, then contact the dealer/FCA for help. Some people had major issues with a torn apart front end and a new mount "on the way." Which either left their Jeep undriveable, or required them to put it all back together. A guy on here had to tear apart and reassemble like 2 or 3 times before he got one manufactured properly, so check before you start wrenching!
Sorry for the long post to a seemingly simple question. Visit this thread for more, EXCELLENT, information. About hoops, lights, winches, mounts, tire carriers, EVERYTHING HR!! But I'll link you right to the post that started the discussion on the new MOPAR mount issues: https://www.wranglerforum.com/f274/ha...l#post24476841
