    Are these trucks on a cj frame? Was seen at a local car show.

    The orginal FC 150 was on a CJ5 frame if my old memory is correct

    The FC pictured is a later "wide-track" with the wider axles. The first couple years had the CJ5 axle width and are referred to as "narrow-tracks". The narrow-tracks were based on a CJ5 frame where the springs mounted under the rails, same as the CJ5, but there are frame extensions reaching upward and forward to carry the FC cab front, so they are not the same frame.

    What Keys5a said. Based on them, but not the same. Wide tracks shared the same frame rails still I think, but different axles, springs and hangers.
