if all that is preventing the larger diamater spare wheel being mounted on the back, is the wheel/tyre hitting the bumperette - you could refit the bumperette upside down for more clearance.

I have seen pics of bumperettes both ways- and it doesnt look out of place.

I have a normal bumper fitted, and my issue is with the jerry can, rear light, and of course having 750mm MOD tyres fitted. To fix it I need to raise and slightly push out the wheel carrier - will have a play this weekend as Ideally I'd like to avoid having to buy another one (£48 on Jeeparts).

Didn't plan the larger tyres, so my configuration works perfectly with the one 650 tyre I have as my current spare, but couldn't miss a deal of £50 per tyre fitted for the 750's :)

Need to have a think :scratch:

Your right mate they look fine either ways. Mind you some time back I mentioned this on the 3B Page as I'd seen a photo with the extended sides facing up and wondered which was correct. Some speculated that they should face down because of the drop down tailgate. Then again, this article suggests other reasons as well;

Well, according to Larry mine are bolted on the wrong way but, as I don't have tail gate or other issues - personal preference takes it. :D

Latest update......not got round to sorting the spare out yet, so it still currently have the smaller tyre as a spare.

But seats now fitted, both front ones now have belts and rear seat fitted, but no belt yet - I have loads of space in the back, so planning to fit a metal Ammo/Tool box behind the drivers seats for storage/tools etc.

Drivers seat is higher than the passenger, but it's at the right height for me to drive comfortably, but may raise the passenger one a little - see how it goes. Rear seat is low, as I want the kids as low as possible inside the jeep.....

Really happy with the look :thumbsup:

Cheers

Won a box on eBay for £9.99, wanted to be able to store all my tools etc, the kids can also lean they're feet against it when sat in the back (mine is LWB so plenty of room), 1st pic is what I purchased, cleaned it up, and added a padlock before painting (still need to paint handle)......not sure of the look though :scratch:

Cheers

maybe its just me- but I reckon a big old ammo box would look more at home bolted in there.

Back in the day grabbing a couple of ammo tins for personal use was common practice and we thought nothing of it. Now-a-days QM dept's check them back in so it can a bit harder to find cheepo or freebee examples with good paint and stencilling. My local junk yard had some, but, left out in the elements they were a bit ropey. But I did manage to get a hold of these. Storing the jack handle and brace is still a problem. :scratch: I may simply strap them down under the seat and be done with it.

Yes it seemed hard to get hold of Ammo boxes without paying loads for them - I did check my local junk yards as well, but saw the Sony case on eBay, I think the paint really helps, but I have this naging doupt. May live with it for a while and Perhaps stick a Red Cross on it :)

Good thing is that I can finally carry around tools and kit with me! Although I still have the issue with Brace and Jack, they are stuffed under my seat, but very easy to nick if somebody bothered to look

Going by my [rather dodgy] memory, a 105mm artillery shell case should fit behind the seats.
A jap. Cj3 thingo I was looking at a few years ago had one bolted in the back as a toolbox, iirc it was a pretty snug fit- and looked like it belonged.
Room for jack, brace, tool kit, a set of hoses, jumper leads and a rather large rats nest.

You are really moving along with this new project.

I have come to a stand still with Double Deuce over the last few months, mainly due to cash flow and spare time as most weekends I am at 1940s events. I have now managed to source a set of 600x16 bar grips very very cheap, so I have now got to pull my finger out and get the wheels finished.

Really enjoying your thread, keep it up. ;)

Kev I intend too. Now I have a set of tires I need to get in the garage and finish refurbing the new whhels, and get a day of work to get the tires changed over. I have agreed to remove the tires of the willys rims at my cost so there is a set of willys rims going on ebay within the next week.

Thank for the comments all :thumbsup:

Money issue for me now, so no roof/hood/bow for quite a while.....Also seem to have a major oil leak at the back of the engine, already changed the Sump gasket (Horrible job!!!), but I'm worried that the rear seal has gone :shock:

Yes the guy who bought mine has done a fantastic job on it, below are two pics he sent me - looks really good!
