    The military 2a LWB and 2a SWB had the raised chassis as requested by the Aust Dept of Defence after our commitment to Sth.Vietnam,the Lwb chassis was numbered in the 253------series,the short in 243----series, the series III was only built as a LWB for Aust military use hope that is of help.

    To johnboylandy

    If you are interested,the Military Jeep Club of Qld. is having it's annual Swap Meet at Beaudesert Showgrounds this weekend, I will be going down there after a AGM meeting at Caboolture,not driving my 1968 GS but will be in a silver Disco 1
    They put on a good 2 course dinner,$25 ahead
    I hope to catch up with you, BTW just ask for Hicksey!!!

    When I got my 2a in 1986 it had a bent left front chassis member probably from being dropped from a chopper insertion got it repaired at a truck chassis repair place,they used a jig and got it within 2mm

    Yeah the GS looks pretty similar to mine Colin, thanks for confirming with pics.

    I'm still working on replacing front cross member, hopefully get it in this week, but I probably won't weld it in exactly the same as original.

    Cheers,
    John
