CJ 5 Frame Question
Does anyone know of any differences between the 1978 and 1981 Jeep CJ5 frames? I have a line on a 1978 frame that I was considering purchasing for a parallel restoration, but I don't have the welding skills to make major modifications to fit the my 1981 body and running gear.

Thanks in advance for the help.

The holes for the skidplate might be in different positions. I've heard that they are and that they aren't. The '78 may have one more crossmember that's in the area below the back seat.

The time now is 04:16 PM.
