Default Base plate wanted for 98 Grand Cherokee

Just throwing this out there before I buy a brand new one.

I am looking for a base plate for my 1998 ZJ also known as the 1st gen Grand Cherokee. The same base plate would fit 96 thru 98. Blue Ox part# would be BX1117.

Looks like the going rate for a new one is around $400. If you have one collecting dust, or know of a better deal, let me know!

You mean the base plate or the Jeep?
Oh well, here's both
The pic of the base plate is Amazon's image, I hope it's accurate.

This is the image from Blue Ox's instructions.
I don't know which image to trust.

I'm not picky about brand, as long as it came off a 96-98 Grand Cherokee.

Don't go crazy Randy, I'm trying to locate one by the last week of August, as I am off work that week.
