M38 / M151 Jeep variants (multiple)

I photographed these M38 and M151 Jeep examples at the Fort Lewis Military Museum and many other museums and air shows, including three I photographed during the 447th BG reunion in Rattlesden

Some of the owners have shared various means of determining the subtle differences between the different Jeep types. It looks to me like the M151 is easily distinguished by the radiator grillwork running horizontally vs. vertically, and also has some frame reinforcement in the sides and fenders.
