    Anyone used their trailer panels/ floors? I contacted them yesterday and was told the T3-C floor panels are USA stamped steel; made in Mn. I didn't know anyone else was out there (aside from MD Juan) after Jeepanels Plus went out of business a few years ago. Any input would be welcome!!

    If they are made in Minnesota, it's probably Midwest Military making them. They're more of a you guessed it-military jeep parts outfit, but a lot of stuff crosses over. John at MM knows his stuff and produces a lot of very good quality stuff. Just be prepared to talk business as he doesn't like to ramble or waste his time.

    Drop me a PM- I just picked up a T3C and have some parts to sell

    Id be interested to hear how the USA made floor panel fits.

    I have an MDJUAN floor panel and one of the problems is the ends are both sheet metal brake bent upward to accommodate a closed tub and the rear needs to be bent down to accommodate the tailgate opening on a T3-C. I have not checked with a sheet metal shop yet to see if they could possible bent in the other way.

    I invited Rommel Juan to attend the 2013 Spring Willys Reunion with one of his Distributors here in the states (DLBensinger) and had the privilege of meeting him, his head engineer and Daryl Bensinger.

    see: Civilian Trailer Development

    I did some trading with Rommel and gave him a Bantam T3-C hitch casting, tailgate, rear side support panels, stake pocket, tailgate chains and a Fulton Coupler and a knob all to use as patterns in exchange for a floor panel, and two front panels.

    I was planning to use the floor in the restoration on SN: 191

    I'm sorry to say he has not answered my emails to check on the progress of manufacturing civilian parts.

    I went another direction and never did need to buy a USA made floor...
    Unfortunately, the only comms I can get from MDJ these days is advising which companies in the US carry their product. Based on what I'm seeing online; Rommel is now heavily involved in the Electric Vehicle (EV) market in the PI. Not sure where that leaves the Jeep and Trailer replacement parts development at...

    I will guarantee the panels at Army jeep parts is 100% accurate i work for George from time to time (i build his axles) and i have been there when parts come in that are not right and refused the whole shippment. One time for somthing as simple as how sharp the bend should have been
