    It is a Kelly Half cab. I tried to get different angles. Hope it helps.

    It's probably a Meyer cab.

    Here's a pic of 1963cj5's '74:

    Not a close-up, but a start. IIRC the panel in the middle is the one you need for a CJ-5, since the back wall is between the wheel wells. The CJ-6 needs the two smaller panels on each side.

    The center panel is really simple - a rectangle of metal with the corners cut off, and the edges bent over about 5/8". The edges have holes for bolting to the bottom edge of the cab, and it's held to the body by sheet metal screws. The water is kept out by a line of rope caulk on the edges.

    (I installed one of these 30 years ago, but that's about all the detail I can recall).

    Pics are awesome, can you take one of the outside rear corner where it bolts to the tub. I need a pic of the offset in the corner to compare to a top I'm looking at.

    Could you get a couple of the doors inside and out for comparison.

    Well, the pic I posted is blocked, now that I'm at work. Try again ...

    Apparently it has too many views ... or something. It's blanked out at the album. If you go here http://jeepsofold.myphotoalbum.com/view_album.php?set_albumName=album11 you can see the smaller version.

    willysnut, did you get to see it?

    Send a PM to 1963cj5 to get the closeups that you want.
