    Hello all,
    I have what i was told and per the registration a Willys 63' CJ5. I am trying to get this thing dialed in. The more i learn about Jeeps and mine in general i am beginning to wonder if i really have a CJ3B, but maybe i am just confused. Is there a good resource that shows the differences between the jeep models?

    I have a hood snorkel cut out. The Tub seems longer than the frame on the back where the lic place is under the tub on the back of the frame. I am not trying to store it to original but want to have an idea when i am getting parts.

    your avatar is a cj5 body - can't tell about the frame for sure but I think the cj3b frame is an inch shorter than an ecj5. I guess its possible that an ecj5 body could be squeezed on top of a cj3b frame, although I think the wheels would be a bit off center in the wheel wheels.

    as said above - pics would help

    found this pic in your media profile - does look a bit odd:

    If the front cross member is round it's probably a 3B frame. The picture of the rear is the first clue.
