Front Counterweight

[ The Old CJ2A Page Message Archive ]

Posted by Mark Jennings on June 15, 2005 at 18:21:52:

Maybe I am crazy for considering this but I figured nothing ventured nothing gained (I think that is how that expression goes) I would like to fabricate a copy of the counter weight that went on some of the early farm Jeeps. I really do not want an extra and unnecessary 265 pounds on the front end. What I am looking for is some dimensions or up close pictures of a counterweight that I can use for a reference. I would make it out of either sheet metal or wood depending on which would be easier. I show my Jeep quite often and thought it would be interesting if I had this option (or a replica). Also if someone near me may have one and does not want a million dollars for it I could buy one and go from there. I am in the small village of Taberg New York which is approx 55 miles east of Syracuse. Thanks in advance for any help or information. Mark Jennings 1947 CJ-2A Number 94871.
