1946 Patent For a Body Extension

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

I can only guess that this design was used by Newgren, as I *think* it was the only firm that built a collapsable body extension. See many of the body extensions documented here. The only thing is that Newgren had double supports, while the patent only shows a single support underneath.

    Amazing amount of work and detail goes into these patent drawings, must be very time consuming. Dave, thanks for all the time and effort you put into tracking down and posting all this valued information.


    I have one of these for my cj-6 , its a folding model , big piano hinges on the corners , haven’t seen it in years , its somewhere here on the ranch , barn ? garage ? who knows ?


    looking closer at this one , it looks like it has hinges ? the best feature of these is the side spare tire mount , moves the spare out of HARMS WAY !! thank you duke wayne ..

    I agree.. this old stuff is pretty cool and the folding version would be great for storage when not in use. My version sadly does not do this. (nor does it have the spare tire mount deal)
