Free 63 cj5 for me

Well, not really free, I traded some harley parts that I was never going to use. I only use pre 84 big twin stuff so the old ironhead stuff i had sitting around went on craigslist, guy says he has a rough jeep sitting on his property and it was set in motion, now i have this. Its going to sit for a year or so before i can get to it, but here are some pics anyway. The last one is for motivation

Stripped it the other day and primed the frame in place. Not doing a frame off just yet, can always do it later. Other than the tub, this jeep is perfect, little surface rust here and there but thats it

This '5 reminds me of the 'CA to PA in a CJ' Jeep.

I'd personally freshen up the entire driveline, melt some new floor boards in it, CLR the tub, and thoroughly enjoy the patina!

The tub has great character! Get it running, driving and stopping good...then enjoy it!

You say "except for the tub" ... the tub looks pretty good from here. The floors are the first to go, if teh Jeep has no top - water pools and rots them. Pretty easy to fix with flat sheet steel. Check the hat channels underneath - they rot too. The gap in the taillight panel looks a little ominous though...

I can attest to the guy with the Ca to Pa deal, he had it parked at the Bantam Heritage Jeep festival.
Floor stuff is easier than most stuff for replacement Initially use cardboard to fake up your new panels. The hat channels are very important under the floor for support. You stated that you do motorcycle stuff so most of this is a way less of a brainer
Good luck
