@ferrariKSA-I also cant wait to get those beautiful shoes on the jeep

@chanu- I am using a 1942 Willys MB low bonnet (headlights inside the grill) body tub.

Just recieved the pictures, Enjoy


Also guys some suggestions for the positioning of fog lamps??

made some small changes
-fitting vacuum seats(god knows where he got them from,they actually have travel in them like suspension)
-welded a pipe on the front bumper.
-going with the Y-frame and the bull bar both (so i can have a half-top,full-top or an open jeep )

Wow great buy, good that you are making a retro jeep modern as I said earlier. So your have gone for green. Just an idea you can have the stencil writing done (serial number) up like the war jeeps on the bonnet and a star rounded on the rear part of the tub. It will add up look to the jeep. Regarding the Fog lamps the best way to do it is buy lamps which suits the jeep as it has got low bonnet and that too from a Ford. Generally fog lamps if big hide the grille and make the jeep look kinda wiered (just my opinion)

For my jeep I borught Mahindra tractors head lamp made by MINDA and getting them arranged on the chassis where bumper gets rivited. By the by what is that before the bumper the rounded pipe it didn't get that.

Once again Good luck!!

@chanu-that pipe is directly bolted on to the front bumper and then welded for extra strength(and to prevent it from rattling)

that pipe is placed because the bumper and the pipe are going to get some thick ropes so it can act as a 2 people sitting area(especially on romantic drives)

On a lighter note, Looks like "Its a Jeep Thing" ! ;-) Put the Jeep in 4Low, jump out and join your partner on the bumper for a ride of a lifetime!

Why is the pipe welded to the front bumper? How do you plan to install 2 tow hooks in the front (used for OTR recovery)?

Hi Garret,

Get the pipe attached to the front bumper removed. It looks out of place. Nonetheless a great job. Looking forward to see the completed product

Regards,
