    While waiting for turkey I made a tow bar mount for the willys. Got some 3/8" flat stock and 2 x 2 x 1/4 tubing

    Paint tomorrow

    I wanted something that would have been used back in the day as a tool box to carry my tow bar and some tools. Came up with this old ammo box on ebay...perfect

    I know I sound like a broken record at this point, but everything you do is amazing. Thank you for posting pictures of your projects.

    Pulled the steering column last night. Still waiting for the power steering to come in but decided to rebuild the box while waiting. Worm gear and sector shaft looks pretty good. Pitman arm has slight wear, figuring oem with slight wear is better than aftermarket
