Great looking CJ!
I too am ate up with envy. I have 2 CJ 7s Sitting at home waiting on me to get home and build them. I got started on one not too far but a year ago I got a chance to come to Australia to work. So here I am only able to dream and drool on the keyboard while looking at the great builds on this forum.
Enjoy your build and keep us posted.

I think i am going to cut the rear cross member off today and order a new one, Due to the fact that it is a little rusty (not bad) a little bent up, and main reason is to fix the rear shackle mount nuts. I only have 1 out of 4 left after teardown.

Good thinking. I fabbed one myself. Actually I had to fabricate the whole rear frame portion myself.

It really does sound like you have a good solid Jeep to work with. Good luck.

This thread makes me pretty nervous about my CJ-5!

To see your frame rusted like that, and the body looks mint.. I have some light rust on the body, and have yet to really go over my frame that close. The spots I have looked at appeared solid, but I have more surface rust than you..

I don't have the time or money to take it down to the frame and make repairs. I'd be pretty nervous to see what I would find if I did..

Question?
With a Lift in the plans, Is there a need for the front axle snubber bracket?
or should I just cut it off as part of my frame preps before paint?
What are your thoughts on this?

I've never removed the body before. Was it a lot of work and a PITA?

Also, excellent frame repair. Looks real professional!

was it a lot of work? not really! just be prepared to deal with issues, like grinding a few of the body mount bolts off, as well as a few broken ones. I know I will have to deal with when i get to the tub.

Just thought I would update and let you all know i was still around.
The Frame was sand blasted and new body mounts were welded on, as well as a new rear cross member, all painted with POR and ready to go!
I have been selling parts that I don't plan on using here and there.
I basically only have a Frame and tub now.
Next step for me is axles. I want to go with a 9" in the rear and a 44 up front.
I will probably get back to it and make some calls here soon and see what i can come up with.
