Please see Questions and Answers for some topics that frequently appear on this board. As you can see, this board loads rather slowly. If you are posting something for sale, please remember to include your location since someone who might otherwise be interested might not be able to use a part or a vehicle that is too far away. Posting your location when you're selling something that needs to be hauled will save everyone's time (and reduce the number of posts on this already too-slow message board). Thanks.

: I bought a bag full of rubber pieces that are supposed to mount in between the body and the frame, quite awhile ago when I began the teardown of my 2A. I'm trying to piece the jeep back together, but I am not sure where these are supposed to go. There weren't any on there when I took the body off. Do they go around the body bolts?

If you are using a repo body then yes they go between the new body and the frame. For a orignal body they might be too thick. The factory used a oiled canves (or similar product) Oringals were only about 1/8 inch thick. If needed thay used more than one at each attachment to align the body. They were used to help prevent rust of metal to metal (yea right) and to prevent squeeks. Normal pratice all makers used back then. I would set the body on and see if the transmission-transfer case clears the floor and if the fenders bolt up. Since their is no adjust of fenders on frame then the body might have to come up a little for the holes to align. Bill
