Is there a panel to repair this section of the body? Mine is badly rusted out due to the brace containing a wood core. The actual brace steel seems to be okay, but the exterior body needs to be patched.

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Email some photos to and we can try to assist.

Can you explain how this SPARE TIRE SUPPORT BAFFLE works in conjunction with the spare tire carrier mounting bracket? Do they both go together to stabilize and then support the tire from the bottom while the mounting bracket supports with rim? I have been unable to see from pictures just how this works. I have a bunch of rusty pieces as I rebuild a 1968 CJ5. Thank you.

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
The baffle goes inside the wheel well as the vertical support. There is a brace that runs thru it horizontally as well.

I have a 1951 Willys Cj3A. I have a bracket like this under the rear fender and need to know if it will work. Please let me know. I have that full section on hand to replace except this part

Willys Tech:
It welds into place in the rear wheel well to support the spare tire carrier on the side of the vehicle.

Can I get this in black for my 1946 CJ2a? if so, how much?

Willys Tech:
Yes we can do that as well. It just adds 20% to the cost.

My 16yr old has a 1948 jeep (rounded windshield) that we are trying to modify to look like a 45/46 (square windshield) military jeep for re-enactments. He can't afford to replace the windshield just yet. This product looks like it will help us hide the windshield. Does every year look basically like this one or are they different by year and style? Thank You.

Willys Tech:
You probably have a later jeep if its a rounded windshield - 3A or 3B. We custom make this to order per vehicle. We make it specific to your vehicle.

Could I modify this one to fit the 48 CJ2A?

Willys Tech:
Im sure it could be.

Can you get this for a 48 CJ2A?

Willys Tech:
We are working on them now.
