M38 Air cleaner - Buy used or repro?
I have had mixed quality with some of the repro parts I have purchased.
My M38 is not for shows, etc., so I am not worried about getting points knocked off for non-original equipment. (If they do that).
Opinions are welcome.

Started out wanting mostly original take off or NOS parts for my project. Using the ‘real stuff’ is so very cool but there are a few areas where a good repo is often the wise choice.
I bought and refurbished an original M38 air cleaner. A difficult job to make it look good unless you can find a near perfect unit to work on. If you can’t find that pristine original unit.... get a good repo and move on.
I was about to list other stuff that argues for using repos but much depends on your project goal. After two years I still struggle with the vision thing.
I too don’t plan on chasing points but have a vague desire that the jeep ends up being mostly authentic, which may not be the best of choices. _________________ Don Alvarez
