    not a bad trailer. a temp solution would be to jsut wire up some generic lights. but of course you know that im sure.

    lights should be available for it fairly easily. have you tried the G? bet they got some somewhere.

    yup, the ole G. military boys over there, if they cant find you the right lights noone can.

    welcome aboard btw, like i said, temporary lights from your local FLAPS or walmsrt will get you legal. you can always get the correct ones later on.

    Check out RAPCO. They have a bunch of M151 parts which should yield the correct taillights.

    Mullins Jeep Parts has some WWII and M100 trailer parts.

    Thought the bullet holes would add a nice touch
    I plan to bring this one up to PA to use with my jeep,was fun to do and learned a lot about them. so if I come across one at the right price I would do it again
