Can't wait to fit it up.
Just finished prepping the next room to be painted so can get the chance while my wife paints it this weekend hopefully.

Does it have a clip, or something that goes into the receiver, to stop it bouncing and rattling?

I think the plate mount is just spring loaded and it has a piece of rubber on the inside so when it makes contact with the bumper it is a snug fit.

Re: Grand Willys project

Yes, was thinking of using one from an older car that is spring loaded. The one I had hinged downwards and for the fuel cap access.

Re: Grand Willys project

I've seen some people use this method for the front hidden winch. Very stealthy

Re: Grand Willys project

On the front bar I made for the XJ the plate hides it too but is attached to a piece that goes into the receiver and held with the hitch pin.

You wouldn't know there was a hitch behind it.
Can see how I made the bar here.
Custom ARB 1
Another one I did.
ARB new bar

Here is a picture of the Centerline Smoothies I have picked out to run.



I am thinking of plastic dipping the centres leaving the rims polished and fitting Willys hub caps in the centre. Might leave as is though to start with.



I will be ordering them in a 17x8.5" with +32 mm offset, 6" of back spacing.

Center Line Wheels

I have to decide this already so I know how much wider to make the cab to fit nicely over the wheels and tyres without any flaring of the guards.

Here is the colour again too as the other picture disappered.





Copper Pearl a 2013 Compass colour.
