I wonder if I can get the springs covered under warranty?

The bent spring was one of yours. The "new" spring is what it was replaced with. I got a little overzealous with the rock garden at the PA Jeep show over the summer and bent that spring. I wheeled the rest of the year on it. I was lucky enough to find another set of used rear MB the springs at a Willys show in October. I'm just now starting my prep for the 2017 wheeling season.

Seems like the GPW sits at least 2" taller now. It's like a monster truck.

I run the rear MB springs in the front. 3a rear springs in the back.

I need to replace the rear springs before to long. I will probably buy new stock replacements.

I finally broke down and replaced my rear springs. I went with crown replacement CJ3a Springs. Netted me an inch and a half of height over my worn out old springs.

I'm having trouble finding replacement snaps for my original style half doors. Does anyone have a source or a link they would like to share?

Good luck. I'll do some more looking but here is a little of what I found.

WO-A-3054 Fastener - Male - flush type #50
Body side curtains 14

G503 Military Vehicle Message Forums • View topic - Canvas Windshield Covers they mention some replacement on page 1 I think but no part number that I noticed.

Edit: Maybe I spoke to quick. https://www.beachwoodcanvas.com/order/productlist.cfm part B30120

How many do you need? I have a few of them and I have the tool to install them. If you are coming to EJS, I can install them for you.

... otherwise, Walcks has them:

Willys Jeep Parts, Restoration & Wiring - Walck's 4 Wheel Drive Curtain Fastener Male Type On Canvas MB, GPW, CJ2A

When you order them, make sure you specify that you need the washer too, otherwise, they will just send you the fastener.

Thanks Frosty! I ordered some yesterday from Walck's yesterday.

On a side note I ordered my rims to run your old stickies. I should have them in a week or two.

Thank you so much for the offer. I ordered some yesterday from Walck's. The $15 flat rate shipping pisses me off considering they're in PA and I'm in Maryland shipping three items each the size of a nickel.

If you didn't already, I would call and remind them to send the washers. I've ordered them from Walcks several times and if I don't remind them of the washers, they forget to send them. .... every time. If you need the tool to install, let me know. I have 3 of them, I can loan you one.

I got lucky. Walck's sent me the washers luckily. Thank you so much for the offer for the tool to install the buttons. I am going to give it a shot in the next few days with the tools I have available right now. I will report back how it goes.

Jpet you where right. I should have gotten the instal tool from you. I ruined one button with my first attempt. I changed strategy and had the second button turn out OK and the third button looks pretty much like it should. The next time I do it I will get the tool for sure.

The tools I settled on and the results.


How I used them.

I went to Harlan with some good friends a few weeks ago. Here are some of my favorite pictures.



















Most of the pictures are from Lions den.
