    I need information for a 80 year old friend regarding a frame for his FC-170 DRW project.

    I have heard the DRW frame is different from the standard 170 frame.
    He has the axles and springs, but the spring hangers were torched off.
    Trying to be sure he gets proper information to find the right frame.

    He has a complete survivor FC-170 DRW, but no other jeep experience.

    The project has the cab, but the bed and frame were wrecked and discarded long ago.

    I've only been around a few DRW's and don't know the details on the rear axle/spring setup. If I recall, the 170 has "outboarded" rear spring perches, but I don't know if this holds true for a dually rear axle. I do know the front axle on a DRW is a wide-track (57"?) front axle used on other Jeep trucks, but has wheel adapters from the 5 on 5 1/2" pattern, to 6 lug matching the rear.
