    Unless your looking original if I recall Napa sells basic lap belts like for forklifts and stuff. Might work and be cheap, don’t know what the requirements are in your state I have seen those used here on old car n such without any issues

    I got mine at the local auto parts store, they weren’t expensive but they also aren’t retractable. I like the ones John posted, you can choose your color (y)

    X3 on the seatbeltsplus ones, they are very nice. Vintage is cool and all guys, but seatbelts are a safety item. I wouldn't trust my life to 50 yr old webbing.

    My 64 didn't have mounts for them until I put a 71 box on it during the rebuild, the 71 box had nuts welded on the fender wells and by the tailgate for the back seat.

    Mine has the plate nuts welded up on front of fender wells. But I don’t know if my tub is original or not.

    Thanks Donny, My Jeep was such a mix of parts I didn't know what was really Factory? I really enjoy just trying to figure out what is and is not factory.

    I bought some 60" belts off eBay and cut out little inserts and epoxied them in to make them look nice.

    Great idea. I ordered a pair off eBay on Tuesday. Where did you find the Jeep inserts? It would be cool to get Willys Overland inserts

    I made them. I just drew them up as a vector graphic and laser cut / engraved them.

    All this talk of seatbelts, what’s your cage setup that makes you want to stay strapped into a sheet metal bath tub?

    My only concern is the highly visible seat belt nuts and getting a ticket
