    It's a long shot but was wondering if any member has a set of original Black wheelhouse cushions in good condition that they would be willing to sell.
    Thank you in advance
    Roy.

    I can send you pictures of mine Roy if it will help. You might find someone that can make them for you from the pictures. Good luck

    I will post them as soon as I can guys, I won't be going up to the Cabin until after the first of the year, our car club Christmas party is the 8th of Jan. I will look at my scrap book and see if I have any clear pictures of them until I can take new ones for you guys. Rick

    Google Early CJ wheelhouse cushions and you get a few clear pictures off the web.Would be easier to have an trim shop make a pair or make them yourself than to find originals in good condition.....Bob

    Roy I saw a set on eBay sold for over $450 I think you can find a trim shop to make them for less than that as Rick said. When I worked at the dealership I think we sold them for around $80 for the set

    Just curious here, but I have a set of wheelhouse cushions that were supposed to be from a '64CJ5, and they are different that what is pictured, and different than the other ones I've seen online in pictures. They are much more angular than rounded on the ends, and they have a textured seating surface, like a mesh type material, with vinyl around the sides and bottom.
    There is no pleated pattern in the seating surface, either. Just flat. Same type snap arrangement to fasten them to the body.
    Is this possibly a different supplier, or maybe a different year thing? I don't know much at all about these cushions, and I'd just like to know.
    Thanks,
    Greg

    Not sure if mine are original or not but are square corners and match the 45 on that one corner. No snaps. I'll have those recovered when I get to redoing the seats and adding snaps and cutout for roll bar I added.
