    Hello,
    I'm trying find some decent quality axle hub dust covers, which the service manual calls "hub caps". I have two originals which are dented but functional so I need to source at least two more.
    I ordered a set from Kaiser Willys Auto Supply. It's not clear who makes theirs. They don't fit well at all. I can easily pull them off by hand.
    Quarter Ton and Military is out of stock of their reproductions.
    Does anyone have suggestions for a source of caps that work?
    Thanks,
    Ken

    I would post a WTB ad for some originals in good shape.

    Af far as I can tell, they were not offered as a service part by Jeep. The flanges are in the parts book, but not the dust covers individually. You could try a WTB (want to buy) here or on other sites, like JeepForum or the G (g503.com). I would also rework the replacement covers a bit with a center punch to make them fit a little tighter. Or you could do a bit of body work on the originals.

    Are these the same part for front and rear axle?
