Hi Karumbaiah, i cant see them 4WD gear levers in these two pics which you have posted in broad sunlight. Unless of course they were removed for some purpose. I wonder why were they removed? Can you share with us?

Jeepdude:
It is original and was similar to the one shown in your pic. Both the sides were rusted and was removed from both ends and was welded with similar channel till the body.

V16:
4wheel Levers were removed when body was brought down for tinkering purpose. As you see in the pic both platforms were chnaged.

Spike: Ealier CJ3B cross member was like the one in the pic i posted. I dont know why that sock in that position.It was there when i bought the jeep.

Karumbaiah

Very nice and clean outcome Sir.

How ever i feel a few CJ3B gurus will point out a few mismatches with a stock CJ3B. For one,I dont think the data-plate should be on the glove box door.

IIRC - Didnt these era jeeps come with FFRA?

But anyways - A superb effort.

Sir - Could you please share the mechanic/phone# name at ponampet in coorg who did this work for you?

Thumbs up

@Karumbaiah, very neatly done, why is the RHS fender clearance with the wheel less as compared to the LHS, when are you fixing up the wipers?
