RRC rear light guard clips part

Does anyone have the screw clips that hold the guards to the taillight? Or know where to get them. Not the rubber housing on the side.

IIRC It is just a plastic spacer, and you use a longer than stock screw.

Yes, it's just a spacer and a longer than stock screw.

The hinged ones attach differently, I've seen a couple of different types with different mounts. One type uses a plate that screws or rivets between the edge of the lamp housing and the tailgate and it's sort of an L shape with a mounting hole for the guard to attach to. You have something similar to this and are missing the mounts?

On the rubber mounted ones like in your picture, the plastic spacer has a threaded metal insert, there's a screw inside the spacer that goes through the lens and then an Allen screw goes into the spacer to attach the light guard to it. These metal inserts have a nasty habit of breaking free of the spacer causing the guard to fall off. I saw some for sale that someone machines out of billet aluminum that uses a single long screw as Nomar mentioned, but you could modify the original ones, or even make some with nylon bushings from the hardware store.

Yes probably confused things with that pic. I have a set that you described with the plate (L shape) attaching to the edge of the light housing but my RRC has the rubber mounts attached. Do the hinged part attach to the rubber mount or am I missing different hardware?

No, take the rubber mounts off and attach the hinge in about the same area. I doubt the existing holes will line up, you'll probably have to drill new ones.
