Please help identify this part

My body man said "this came off your Jeep... do you know where it goes?" (I know, I know... need to get a different body man.) Anyway, I looked at the part but I don't remember seeing this on the Jeep anywhere... anyone know what it is and where it goes?

I'll take a shot. On my scrambler it would bolt to the floor behind the front seat and to the wall that runs verticle to the floor that the back seat is on. It is a brace that stiffens up the floor behind the front seats to the wall that goes up (4") to the floor where the back seat is located. My scrambler would have two of these. One behind each front seat.

I do not have a picture of them. I don't have them in my scrambler because I had a resto done in 2001 and they got misplaced. I have read some adds where folks have parted out their jeeps and this is when I discovered this part. What you have may not be what I am talking about but it is my best guess. I figured your back area of your jeep floor is about 4" higher that the floor directly behind your front seats. This part is bolted to the floor behind the front seats and to the wall that is about 4" high. Hard to describe.

Can't say that I have seen that part on any CJ series Jeep. Anything close would be a CJ-8 Scrambler support bracket at the rear wheel house.

Thought it might be part of the steering column or brake pedal bracket system but no. Not even a CJ-5 spare tire support bracket for the back matches it.

I don't recognize it either. Where was the work being done on your jeep? Maybe isolate where it could have come from and it might register with someone. Or maybe it was off another vehicle he was working on? I don't know.

Part in Scrambler

Here is the bracket behind passenger seat of my scrambler.... I had a full bedliner installed so sorry for the quality. Just like previous said, it sets just above the floor of the CJ and below where the bulkhead sets... I removed mine as I go topless.
Looks similar to me.

I'm rebuilding the whole Jeep, so I can't isolate a certain area. However, I do know he was working on a Scrambler some time last year... that may be where the parts are from.

Definitely looks like the Scrammy part to me. I just assumed all CJs had them there. Maybe that's why 8s fetch more money. Wonder if it helped provide support for downward force from the bulkhead/hard top?

Actually, that last part shown in the photo is an 'Inner Gusset' that bolts to the part in question which is called the 'Lower Gusset' on a Jeep CJ-8 Scrambler. No doubt about it.

The 'Lower Gusset' supports the Scrambler's Roll Bar where it bolts through the floor panel, then the 'Inner Gusset' is bolted to that to provide additional support.

The body shop has dug up an old part from a previous customer's Jeep Scrambler and is trying to pass it off as a part from your CJ-5, which it is NOT.

Thanks Keith... I think you have nailed it. Thanks to everyone for weighting in on this.
