    Hey team,
    Stripped the caliper bolt.
    Apparently it is a unicorn bolt.

    Where or does anyone know the part number?
    It's about an inch long and 1/4 to 1/2 width

    paid cash for it.
    A Jeep dealer will stock it. You'll be surprised how much they charge for it, lol. Working on my old 2011, I had to purchase a couple of OEM bolts that I had no choice but to sacrifice. It taught me a whole new respect for cleaning, presoaking, heating, you know the whole nine yards it takes to remove a rusty bolt intact. After paying the dealer's premium, I decided to make sure nothing else broke or needed grinding off, lol.

    It can be frustrating to find OEM spec bolts in hardware stores, as they use thread styles and metric sizes that might be viewed as unusual in the deepest darkest USA, lol. That’s why I suggested the dealer. These are not rare to the parts manager of any Stellantis dealership. They’re listed as part #s and used across many vehicle platforms. Dig deep and bend over though. Another suggestion might be to go to an old fashioned junk yard and rescue any fasteners that you need there from a more late model wreck that isn’t badly corroded.

    There’s only a couple things more fun than going to a junk yard that you can scrounge around in and take off your own parts. Enjoy the day RenegadeJEEPer!
