I need help locating a headlight shell for this military Dodge.

As you can see this is a nothing special 89 Dodge cab and front clip. I want to replace the busted headlight and turn signal shell with the same OD color that is on the passenger side. Obviously I am not going to locate one in a salvage yard. Do any of you have any ideas?

That is the problem. I want my replacement to match the other one. I would have to repaint both and trust me, that color has not been easy to find. You would think it would be.

That is Gloss OD, correct? Surplus stores are the only places I hve ever been able to find that stuff.

I seem them for $53 each. Then I came across this..

The Chevy tugger looks awesome. What's under that one; Rockwells or M-H? I want one of those.

One issue I am having is I want that color OD paint. If I can get a number or something to help identify it That would help.

That Chevy has four wheel steer and I think ZF axles.

No problem. GCI looks like your best bet. They had a ton of info on their site.
