I noticed an error in their parts list on their web site today. I took about half an hour to round up the correct part numbers and descriptions and sent them an email explaining the error on their web site. https://www.willysjeepparts.com/Radiator_Guard.htm
Here's their one word answer to my efforts:

8677338 is the left one and 8677339 is the right one and both of these are only used on the M38 and your ORD#'s only call out for the bracket without the pin. The complete lower hinge assembly with bracket & pin is left ORD# 7372887, WO# 673281 and right ORD# 7372888, WO# 673282.
The M38A1 uses Bracket with pin assembly left ORD# 8329977, WO# 681443 or WO# 680395, FSN 5315-316-1031 and right ORD# 8329979, WO# 681444 or WO# 680396, FSN 5315-316-1032.
The pin only for any of the above is ORD# 8393232, WO# 681439
This information is split up between sections 15 (Frame) and 21 (Guards) in both M38/M38A1 ORD 9's + the info found in the M38A1 TM 9-2320-208-20P and -34P

There are so many errors in this catalog that it makes me very leery of using any of their parts! _________________ Dan Schultz

I have dealt with these folks before. They sell "will fit" jeep parts. Details doesn't matter. They may have a few spot on parts, but you had best know what you needed before hand. Their prices are top shelf to say the least! _________________ Harold W.

I know it's an old thread, but I appreciate the head's uo.
I have removed them from my Jeep Parts bookmark list.
I have bought a lot of parts for my M38A1, and have used some very good vendors... _________________ 1955 M38A1 MD 82551
