    Thought I should put this out here before I start cutting it up.

    I have a 67 CJ5 body tub and fenders that I don't want to fool with. The tub is fixable but too rough for me to tackle. Both rocker panels are rusted out, and the right rear corner where the spare would have been mounted has some rust out. The front floor pans and riser need to be replaced. The left rear quarter is pretty good, the cargo bed is surprisingly straight and solid, and the cowl and firewall are pretty good. Both fenders are bent at the front but could be straightened.

    Anyone within driving distance of 37308 can have any of that for hauling it off.

    If nobody wants it I will be cutting it up to salvage what is worth keeping and scrap the rest.

    Would you be interested in cutting out the embossed Jeep on the sides? If the cut up is the route you go.

    If nobody wants the whole thing I will be cutting it up. Depending on how big a section you want may be able to fit into a USPS flat rate box.

    Spring time road trips through the south are fun.

    Will give it a week and if nobody wants to come after the whole body by then I will cut out the panels you want, just let me know how much of the panel around the logo you want.

    Looks like it is 175 miles between here and Horse Cave Kentucky.

    I will go down and take some pictures later today and post them here.

    I parted out a CJ2A a couple years ago and the guy who came from Alabama to get it loaded the complete body, tub, fenders, hood windshield and tailgate in the bed of a pickup truck. I used the front loader on my tractor to load the body on its side into the truck.

    Here are some pictures. The cargo bed had some stuff in it but it, and the wheel houses are pretty good. The PO cut out the rusted parts of the floor, left fender is the worse, right fender isn't so bad. Left rear corner and rocker panels have some rust through. The tub looks straight, just more patching needed than I want to fool with.

    Axle I pulled out from under my 47 CJ2A. Has Ford disc brakes on it, and the spacers I used until I decided to replace the axle with a NOS M38A1 axle I had in the garage.

    Have no idea if it is Dana 25 or 27, because it probably is not original to the 47 CJ2A it was under. I wasn't interested enough to investigate what model it is because it is in pretty bad shape, which is why I replaced it rather than fix it.

    I know already it is a Dana Axle, either a 25 or 27, but it is junk.
