Looking for a yj jack

Hey, looking for a stock jack for my 95 yj. The mounting hardware is there but the PO lost the jack. Where would be the best place to get one? Thanks.

That ebay one must be a different year than mine. I have a 94 and the stock jack is a scissor-type jack. I'm unfortunately missing a few pieces so it's not functional

This may not be what you want to hear, but just buy a Hi-Lift jack (or a Harbor Freight Farm Jack, if you only want to use in emergencies) and mount it on the hood. I made a hood mount for $5 with the stock hood latch. For each side, you need this combination bottom to top: bolt head, washer, washer, nut, nut, washer, washer, wing nut. Take out a torx screw on the hood latch and run the bolt (with a washer) through it. Then run another washer over it and tighten down the nut. Thread another nut on it, place a washer, and adjust the height that you want your jack to be. Repeat on the other side. Put the jack on the two screws, put down the washer, then the wing nut. Bam. Just put a lock attached to the hood on it, and zip tie or velcro the handle to the jack so it doesn't rattle or scratch your paint.

It's probably too late for you, but anybody else who reads this might as well just toss their stock jack. A farm jack is much better. Just use it on your front frame that sticks out, or the rear tube bumper. Mine didn't come with a lug nut wrench or jack, so I tossed the mount to make room in the engine bay, and bought a breaker bar from Harbor Freight to attach to a spare 3/4 inch socket. Just buy one of their individual impact sockets and a 1/2 inch drive breaker bar. I got the 3/8 inch drive just because that's the spare socket I had.
