In this picture you can see the difference.
I think the low WS is 2" lower.

The height on my Feb 42 slattie is 23 inches. If yours is a 41 i think it is different.

Hello Mark, Thanks! The M201 is owned by my brother in law.
I like slat grill's to, they are the real jeeps 8) :lol:
102711...that is not far away from my 102557 slatty.
The WS should be 2" lower than Mark's.

Have a great weekend,
Luc

Luc, i noticed you have indicators on both jeeps on the lower grills. Is this regulation where you live ? In England, if your vehicle dont have indicators, you are not under regulation to fit them. Mine has them though, fitted into the blackout lights, fitted by the previous owner, he did a very nice job too. :D

Hi Mark,

Same here, if not from the factory it is not mandatory.
But it is much safer on a daily driver.
These blinkers are assilly removed.
The back has no aditional lights except for a fog light.
I have installed the US style blinker system where the stop lights also function as blinkers.
