M100 trailer fender on a M38/CJ3 question?

Last thing I need to do to make my M38 street legal is some kind of rear fender. For looks and simplicity I wanted to go the route of the old farm Jeep Dullly fenders. But I have yet to find one. But I was told that they simply used surplus M100 trailer fenders back in the day to make a rear fender for a CJ2, 3 or M38.

Can anyone varify this? Anyone out there with a stock M38/CJ3 and a M100 trailer and willing to go measure the radius of the rear wheel arch of the Jeep and the trailer fender?

Muchly appreciated

Mike

@dvdsjeeps on instagram used trailer fenders from Tractor Supply (I think) on his dual rear wheel 2A and they look great.

Planning on doing this dual tire/ wheel bit to my CJ5 one day soon but unsure of axle to use hence one of the reasons I posted the thread on differentials and their relative strength.

I plan to use the Dodge 8 bolt wheels and hubs on a Dana 60 rear diff and a Dana 44 front.

Thats the look Im going for, do you happen to know what size fender he used 36? Ive tried the biggest fender I could find at my local Ag supply place but they were 32s and not even close to fitting.

Do you still need some M100 fender measurements? I have one I can get them off of for you. As you have probably found, they aren't easy to come by though.

D+L Bensinger has re pop fenders for $115, in case you wanted to go that route.

If you could get the measurements for the trailer fender that would be great. Measuring my M38 wheel arch I get a 20 radius or 40 wide fender. Largest fender I can find is a 36 or 18 radius. I can get M100 fenders up here for $300 a set plus shipping, dont want to spend that money only to find they wont fit.

OK, really sorry for the delay. Work, weather, wife's car. You know.

They have a rolled edge, so figure the ID is about 32" and 8.5"

Thank you for the measurements Mike.

It confirms that the M100 fenders or any 32 (16 radius) trailer fender will fit inside the rear wheel arch of a stock M38/Cj3, and it looks like thats what they did it with the farm jeeps back in the day.

It also confirms it will not fit MY M38, looks like the previous owner opened up the rear wheel archs towards the rear of the body to fit larger tires, so 32 fenders will have an gap. But I still,plan on going this route but will be using 34 or 36 fenders slightly modified, I also plan on making them bolt on and removable, that way I can drive on the roads with out the local county Mounties ticketing me for inadequate tire coverage but still be able to take them off when on the trail. I will post pics on my build thread once I get moving on it which might be soon as the local tractor parts store is open today and Im board and Tired of this -40 weather we have had all month.
