    I never liked those so called drain holes, with that tiny lip on the bottom, water never drained just accumulated there and rotted the body. Back in 1962, (maybe before your time) I became aware of this when at the age of 13 doing body work on my dad’s CJ3A. My dad being in WW2 knew what they were and told me they were worthless. Soldiers still got wet feet and would poke holes in the floor to solve the problem. From that point on, always blanked them out.

    Mike, the WWII jeeps were made with drain holes in the floor. It was the civilian jeeps (CJ) that had these poorly-functioning side holes. And my 1942 GPW has an “extra” drain hole… actually it’s a bullet hole! I figured the bullet hole was enemy fire or an accidental weapon discharge, but I suppose it could have been a frustrated GI getting the floor to drain faster 🙂

    Joe, thanks for the info, I guess what my dad told me must have been an “old war story”. I knew the CJ5’s had drain holes in the floor, Wasn’t aware of the GI Jeeps having it also. Glad you could set me straight on this, Thanks.
