    Interesting, got me to check the Mil parts books:
    The MB and 'A1's had folding interior bows but the M170 (CJ6-like ambulance) had the rear exterior bow sockets.

    Thanks for the insight. Mine has these, thought they were from an old tire carrier or something. Was going to cut them off.

    Was going to cut them off when I didnt know what they were. Now that I know what they are; theyre staying. Im very glad I procrastinated.
