Looks like an M38 to me. Big filler neck opening with hte handle by it, and larger openings in the grille for blackout lights. The windshield looks like CJ2A.

looks like m38 tub, big hole filer, guages on a seperate panel, 2a winshield, hood. V6 mod, 225 dauntless was real popular, but no way to know as many adapter plates are made.
cool little rig, hi po version of my stock 2a.
I like it. if you put that pic up on the 2a forum pages i'd bet somebody there knows him.
cheers
Rick

ps, looks like a dana 25/23 setup rear is the wartime full floater, axles dont want much more than a v6 on em probably has a t90/ d18 tranny transfer case, pretty solid setup, pretty reliable, kinda scarey over 55 mph! (5:38 stock gears, 4:88's are avail, they do make lockers for both diffs as well), a bit like a 4wd gokart. but partial to em its what i have.(46)
oh and stock brakes welll they just suck, do a disc conversion or at least put 11" drums up front.

What nailbanger said looks accurate to me. Also looks like stock suspension setup but lifted, they came with reversed shackles from the factory back then. Also looks like a poer saginaw steering setup. Personally I would also recommend a 225 v6 if you get one, easiest to fit, cause going v8 you have to cut a lot of the body up to squish one in. As for trans, recommend a T18 4 spd / D18 / with a Warn or Saturn OD, makes trips a bit easier. I have an early CJ as well, they are tons of fon, very unique compared to most Jeeps you will see on the road, but take a lot more work and modification to get similiar creature comforts as the newer ones.

That's not an MB gas filler. The MB had no external gas filler, you filled it directly into the underseat tank. The one pictured is a typical M38 style filler. The grill is also typical M38. The only thing not M38 is the windshield frame, which is CJ2a (although I have no idea how you can pinpoint it to a 46 model year based on that pic).

Not correct. The only Jeep with factory reversed shackles was the M38-A1, which this definitely is not. This Jeep appears to be an M38, which had C-shackles at the front, not reversed.
