Nice, pricey little rascal, but nice!
Parts/ mechanical restorations/ custom machining
Struggling to find an original or bolt-in replacement for the dauntless v6 belt-driven cooling fan. Any help is appreciated!
Summit has a pretty good selection of universal fixed blade fans that are very similar to the original fan options:
Chrome bumpers for Tuxedo Park & Commando are available from Jeepsterman
Spendy though $$$
Front Bumper, Chrome, 1967-1971, Jeepster Commando and CJ-5 Tuxedo Park | Jeepster Man Inc (thejeepsterman.com)
Does anyone reproduce the Meyer Hardtop decals....would be cool!?!
Nice bumpers, but note there are extra holes. 2 on the top of the bumper, and 4 on the bottom. Has the 3 holes on the front face (one for the license plate holder)
Anyone have 60's seat brackets available? If not, can someone tell me what size the tubing OD size is and I'll make a set?
1" tubing would work.
Originals in good shape are getting scarce, but they do show up from time to time on Ebay, Facebook market, and the forums but they are usually priced high.
I saw a Jeep where the two brackets had been replaced with a square heavy wall tube going all the way across with supports in the middle. I liked the modification and intend to do something similar with mine. I think I saw that on this forum.
I couldn't find the post I remembered, but did find the one below which shows some seat frames made from water pipe that look very close to originals.
Not cheap, but Somar 4x4 has reproductions of the original style brackets: https://somarmotor.com/product/front-bracket-seat-for-65-71-jeep-cj5-amp-cj6-pair/
They also have reproductions of the original style seats for less than it costs to upholster old ones: https://somarmotor.com/product/set-...in-oem-black-jeep-for-55-79-jeep-cj5-cj3-cj2/
I have not seen either in person so can't comment on the quality.
I think I have some that you can come over and take measurements from. Be nice to meet someone in my neck of the woods too. Send me a private message if interested.
This helps me soo much. I have been searching for seats for a while. Thanks!
I would be interested in drawings or sketches from the original soft-top hardware and door frames for a 1965 CJ5 so I could fabricate my own. I don't like the rusted steel top thats on mine.
