I ordered a bunch of parts on 1/19/17 from Quarter Ton & Military Jeep Parts in GA. They should be here by the time I get off work on Thursday.
I ordered: exhaust pipe, muffler and gadgets, bellcrank rebuild kit, flex fuel line and battery retainers.
In addition to those, I figured I might as well save on shipping and order some of the finishing touches at the same time. Those are: new steering wheel, cowl rubber, transmission shifter boot, transfer shifter boot, shifter knob set and a filler neck grommet. Plus I went ahead and bought 5 inner tubes (Carlisle, with the correct valve stem for $9.75 ea!)
I have an appointment with Wigington Surplus on Friday to pick up some of the bigger items like spare tire carrier, gas can carrier, 2 rims, b.o. driving light and bracket and gauges. I’m sure I’ll find done other things I need while I’m there – he has an old military vehicle scrap yard.
I also called WeeBee Webbing to get an estimate on shipping time for a set of seat cushions. David said they Donna usually gets them shipped out within 10 days when they aren’t swamped, and they aren’t behind right now. So I guess I’ll wait a little closer to being done before I spend that money.
Summit Racing Equipment has the best price on 7.00×16 NDCC – Firestone branded too, so I’ll be ordering those soon as well.
After that, I will only have some small stuff to buy here and there to finish it up. Stay tuned – I’ll be updating in a few days with my parts shipment and will be getting back to work on it Friday afternoon or Saturday morning.
