OEM Part numbers?

Anyone got the oem part numbers for the flex tracks? Also the window wipes? I figured that I'd give it a go at the local Jeep dealer to see what they may access to.

I'd use a cut-off wheel and cut the nut off. Cut it at an angle, using several slices to whiddle away at it. Just don't go too deep as to cut the bumper itself.
