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

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

Found the date change. Its in the Lawrence Nabholtz book, the date change was December 41 , from short to tall. Hope this helps. :)
