Any local auto parts store will get you fixed up. The wiper arms aren't "Jeep" specific. The twin lic plate lights are prolly the round press-in lights in 76? Also generic. They come two to a card.

Drivers side. Don't know about the J-20 specifically but most common was the 208 either behind an AT or MT. In the rest of the FSJ line and possibly(?) the J-20 was the optional 219 with AT only.
