Default Can't Find Antenna Upper Replacement for 99 XJ

So, I had a bunch of body work done on my 99 XJ and the place lost the top mount (the black plastic part) that holds the antenna from the top side to the fender.

I have the wiring tucked away with the removable dongle on hand. But that's it. I need the entire upper or some suitable replacement. I'd prefer not to have to change all the wiring, since the wiring running into vehicle is good.

I've attached photos of what I have, as I have the antenna as well, just not the top black plastic part that holds from above.

All feedback appreciated!

I think you need these 3 pieces:
56038 507AB - Escutcheon antenna
56007 570AB - Cap nut
56022 200AA - Antenna mounting grommet

I had the same problem when the plastic top part broke.

Send them the bill once it arrives. They lost it, they can pay for it. Thats why when working on a customers vehicle, all small parts should be kept in one place. In the trunk, backseat, or wherever. In a box or a baggie.

I think I used this place:
https://www.factorychryslerparts.com...ey_model=15525

They seem to list all the parts as available.

Dealer parts are a real PITA to find these days. I had to drive an hour (across Boston) to get a locating pin and considered myself fortunate to find a place that had one without having to have it shipped.
The local dealer said they could order it and have it next day, but I'd have to buy 4 since they had a minimum qty if they ordered it and refused to put it in their stock.

The two other small parts I had hoped to get (cps grommet and a bolt) were completely unavailable. Crown makes the grommet, but I wasn't willing to wait several days or pay $50 to ship a $2 part. Again, fortunately the locating pin was the one part I considered "required".

For the antenna, order it or hit the local junkyard.
