Try Horne Data Plates. Sells on the online auction site...I don’t think he has a website.

Horne is great, and has most Ben Hur maker plates. Got the ones for both my Willys TW-6 and Hercules T-6

Robert at Dataplates4u is in the middle of remodeling his home, so he is not fully operational. He doesn't make 1 ton trailer plates anyways.

Robert made a one-off plate for my Lavine Gear 1 ton last year, from a photo. Beautiful work, timely, and reasonable.

Robert dataplates4u has not answered several of my emails, that's why I wondered it he was still in business. If one of you has a way to wake him up, please do it. If he wants to sell data plates after he finishes his remodel he needs to stay in touch with his customers!

Just go to Horne Data Plates on e-bay. They are THE BEST. My opinion, but shared by many. If you can't get the guy you wanted to, and you still want them, go to Horne.
