Question By: Rodney Kindlund on Jun 1 2021 3:31 AM
You could with proper backing. You just wont be able to lower the tailgate without removing tire.

Your inner wheel well on the passenger side quarter panel on your Willys has a cross pattern brace. We sell the baffle if you need it as well. If your existing braces are there it will line up. Call us toll free and we can help.

Questions: My '47 CJ2a right qtr panel has been patched many times and I can't find evidence of original mounting holes. How do I mount the carrier to be in the original position? Do 2 bolts go thru the inner fender brace, or just one? Is it mounted straigh or at an angle? Lightening hole up or forward? I find pictures with many variations.... but most look like about 10:00 o'clock on the wheel well radius. Thanks and regards, Jeff
Question By: Jeff on Feb 23 2012 12:00 AM
It is mounted at an angle and one upper and one lower bolt go thru the brace.

Measure twice - drill once. Mock up the bracket so that it lines up with the brace in the inside wheel well.
