Exhaust stud replacement question

I couldn't find anything by searching, maybe someone can point me in the right direction.
85 cj8, 6 cyl The exhaust stud closest to the fan needs to be replaced. It is still intack but I don't want to re-torque down onto it. I just put some headers on & the nut was going on too tight on that bolt so I back off & the stud came with it, I thought it twisted off at 1st - had me wide eyed for a sec..
Sooo, I'd like to replace it with a new hardened one.
Anyone know where I should start shopping?
The local "zone" shop couldn't get me one

Thanks Leve,
I've been so weighted down in this ongoing project I sometimes can't see the forest, darned trees are in the way

real quick update,
motor is in, tranny is back in, fenders are back on along with radiator, just the grill & hood, brake lines & exhaust to go!

Most good dealers should have them in stock. They are an updated model that come with a nice washered nut, and stronger material. It is the same stud used for the 2.5L exhaust warrenty. Somewhere around $1.25 ea
