Hi Lars, where in Norway are you?

The combat type rims allow metal runflats to be fitted so the tyres
wont come off the rims when driven flat. One-piece solid rims are
lighter and more maintainable as long as you are not getting your tyres
shot at ! Some (most?) early Willys came on one-piece wheels (slat
grilles for example) while I'm told that all GPWs and GPA's came on
combat rims. Technically a one-piece rim could find it's way onto any
Jeep and it is worth slightly more if original (3-rivet groups NOT

I'm in Bergen this week and a friend wants me to get him a Jeep tow
hook and some rear bumpers cheap, any ideas? and I have room for a few
more Dodge parts in the car if you have any spare?
