Howdy, because of the extended spring shackles the standard straps are too short, you can't get original canvas ones but there are some repo army ones pop up occasionally.

I madesome up by getting some canvas fire fighting hose, sliting it open then folding it over to the rigt width with about 3 layers, then cut to length and bolted on.

Cheers

No that is a very good idea.

I used the old ones, they were ok, but I had some new ones that of course did not fit, the old ones look same as the new ones , other than different colure.
