Well if you have been following my endeavors to get a BOV trailer, yesterday was the day. I bought this 1948, yes that's right 1948, Willy's jeep trailer from a fella that restores military vehicles. He bought this and went through it and repainted it, added non-stock tail lights, oh well, newer tires and checked the greasable bearing surface on the leaf springs. It rides and pulls very nicely. According to him Willy's Jeep fashioned these after the M101 1/4 ton military trailer as the story goes, can't confirm but it is a really nice light weight rig. It now has a 1 7/8 ball hitch, not standard on the military type, which if I decide to can be unbolted and replaced with a lunette ring for a pintile hitch setup. I purcashed new wheel bearing seals and plan to repack them next, when I talked to a off-road mechanic yesterday he said the bearing are oversized and most likely still good. Can't wait to get this on the trail behind the Jeep Wrangler now.
