Anyone have a tubing roller in the Placerville area? I need to roll some 1/2” tubing to make some rear fender edges. Exactly like this.

My uncle had a tubing roller and I got the rear fender trims bent and tacked.

Nice, I just drove my 57 for the first time today since I swapped the motor and coil over suspension. My front hoops are very similar to yours.

Rear ARB and gears installed. In hindsight I should have installed locker before welding on truss. Was tricky getting those little o-rings on the copper tubing.

I am looking around for axles to swap under my 1961 Willys Wagon. I see you used a 14 bolt in the rear and a Dana 60 front axle. What is the front axle out of? what year?

63 Willy’s wagon build

Front 60 is out of a 78-79 Ford F-250 snow fighter package. I think I paid $900 but it was a long time ago. Got the 14 bolt from pick-n-pull. Ruffstuff has all the 14 bolt goodies including cover, guards, trusses, brake brackets and loaded calipers with parking brake provisions.
