I bought a set of the 384W units and was going to use the ARB awning brackets (super beefy and well made) mounted to the aluminum crash bar. I even went so far as to cut a section of the lower grill in the bumper to allow the brackets to "poke through".
From there I planned to use aluminum flat...
I am going to try @RET2 's suggestion and make my own.
I did not easily find 3/16" thick 6061 that was 6 inches wide, so I got 1/4"
It came 1/4" x 6" x 12" for about $14 bucks
I mocked up some cardboard and took some measurements.
Looks like 11/16" hole height will align with the slotted channel...
In rust free areas, probably no.
Wiggle wiper arm up/down and in/out
Arm should be able to be "lifted" off the mounting stud of the wiper motor
WD40 or a few gentle hammer taps around the mounting stud may help or be needed
This is what I have on mine, by the way...I did notice the mounting stud does not sit exactly the same as the original = the nut does not go on enough to have exposed threads showing on the top of the nut.

I also have a driver side vertical seal with several gaps where the previous owner installed Sat Radio.
2 or 3 inch painters tape run the full length, is a great...
Full kit installed, no problem...Thanks, @LandCruiserPhil
Drove in 93 degree temps today for about 3 hours and MUCH "go, stop, idle" (5 o'clock on a Friday) on a major Texas highway I-35 and all was crisp and cold even in the stop and go traffic.
Seems more consistent as well as...
With the stripped out plastic lower glove box mounts (white inset square) and broken strut, it looks like a heavy hand or multiple cabin air filter check/change over the years contributed to its demise.
I am going with a new strut (55557-60010 supercedes to: 55557-60020)
AND save the original...
