I have this thing I call Diggerjeep, it is not a full size, but it is a dually. Garage kept for the last 30 years.

Would like to pick up a spare wheel for the back. Can you help?

That's the first CJ-5 I've ever seen setup with a dually rear!

As far as getting a rear wheel for it, check with Elliott, he might have one. I'm sure he'll be along soon when he sees the word dually tho... :eek2:

I have had several CJs over the years, but this one I got for towing it out of a guy's garage. It originally had a grader blade and trencher, but that was long gone when I got it. It has a half cab. The jeep only has 5000 miles. The engine was seized from sitting for 20 years in a garage with a dirt floor. The inside windshield was rotted. Has been fun to get current condition. It is a 1968 model, and the original tires. Rear is a Dana 70 5.87:1 ratio.

Also, where can I get 4 lug nuts and one wheel stud? I have one undersize wheel stud and 4 lug nuts that are smaller than the rest.

I live in Langhorne, PA

As far as the lugnuts and wheel stud goes, I'm not really sure. I'm guessing you've tried most of the local parts stores near you.

Two things that comes to mind would be http://www.jcwhitney.com and http://www.kanter.com

Not sure if either of them will have what you need, but it might be worth a look.

Have you looked at some of the Jeep aftermarket online stores?

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. I don't know if I put any pics of the trencher CJs in the dually miscellaneous section... I have a bunch from what guys have sent me anyway. Those are really cool rigs and your's looks to be in super shape. Do you know your rim width, and is it the large 6 bolt lug pattern? I sold four IH rims awhile back, they were just a lil narrower than what were used on the Gladiator and M715 dually rigs. If I know your rim width I'll know where to start looking. Feel free to email me reminders as I've got a ton of projects I'm working while it's finally cooler here in TX and I'm off my butt. ;)

Very nice!
