Postby NRA life member » Sat Feb 18, 2012 10:15 pm

I read somewhere that You could get Bumperettes as an option on a 2-A , has anyone else heard of this?

The good thing about having alot of old jeeps is,it makes it more difficult for your wife to tell when you bring another one home.

My Dad had 2 jeeps in the 60's, one being a 56 DJ and I remember it had bumperettes, I was in high school at the time and would occasionally drive them.

The A-1157 Bumperette was not listed in the CJ-2A amd CJ-3A Factory Parts Lists of the 40's. They would require removal of the Drawbar.

How many timers has "I used to drive one of these in the Army" resulted in a would be driver going thru all kinds of contorsions while he is standing on the plunger? :wink:
