This is the part, MOPAR 05027549AA:



I can't find any online sources that have it available.

I called my local dealership and the parts guy told me that there are several dealerships around the country (Kentucky, Tennessee, South Carolina, Ohio, Florida) that have some in stock, but the part is discontinued.

You could try working with your local dealership and see if they can get one transferred to them. Or your local dealership can give you the contact info of the dealerships in the states that I listed that do have the item, and they could probably sell you one over the phone and ship it to you.

I looked through my bone pile. I've got two spare prop rods but not extra grommets. One of the the part numbers is 5027549AA. I couldn't find any for sale online.

Many salvage yards will be absolutely full of these. You can likely get as many as you want there for just a few dollars.

Might have a problem getting it out, in one piece, off a salvage car. Rubber degrades over time and heat/weather exposure. If you do manage to get one started to remove, it may break or split before you get it out in 1 piece.

Put a little liquid soap on the rod before removing the bushing then you can get it out ov the fender

I went to my Chrysler dealer and they gave me a list of dealers that still had one, so I ordered it yesterday. Thanks for all the help
