don't know if this is what you are looking for. If it is, perhaps the seller can measure it for you?

The 10 Bow Stakes are 45 3/4" Long. The measurements are taken from NOS WWII Stakes I once had in stock. The late War thru 70's short metal stakes with the shoulder will also give the same bow height and are easier to remove. I recommend the metal and use them on my CCKW.

I had a set of those steel posts for the bow corners and bows on my 1st. Chevy, I think they're really great........... Sure would like to find another set, any ideas Ben where a guy could find some? I've looked on Ebay but couldn't locate any.

I just picked up a late war wooden bed that still had the troop seats and top bows. The uprights are 44 3/4" long.

I would try the large surplus yards like Memphis, Sam Winers, White Owl, etc. They part out trucks and also NOS from the Gov't. The stakes are the same from WWII thru at least the late 70's. Will try to get an ORD Part No., FSN, or NSN later.
I had a lot of these NOS over the years and am down to just a few spares.

STAKE, ORD# 7372781, NSN 2510-00-737-2781.
Cargo Trucks have 10, they go between the Bow Corner and the Troop Racks and are a substitute for the wooden stakes. They are the same for G-506, G-508, GTB, and the M-35/M-211/M-54.
