Sam’s Jeep Trailer

• CATEGORIES: trailer • TAGS: .

Flatfender Willys owner Sam Thomas scaled back his projects for a while, but  plans on creating a little busier shop.  After doing some research, he believes he is the only flatfender-specific rebuilder and restorer left along the eastern slope of colorado now that Mile-Hi Jeep has closed.  So, he is looking to hire a couple mechanics who are experts with older jeeps. If you are interested, call Sam at 720-841-0614.

If you have been reading eWillys for a while, you might have remembered Sam was working on a simple conversion process for adding a rack and pinion steering system to an older jeep.  I will detail that tomorrow.

In the meantime, I wanted to share Sam’s recent project, a trailer designed specifically for carrying a jeep.  Here are the specifics.
