I found a CJ5 at a jeep dismantler place in Indiana and thought that the lettering on the side of the tub seemed strange. It had JEEP spelled out in all caps inline with the top of the lower door hinge. has anyone seen this before? Sorry I didn't get any pics.
More info on the jeep..... they say it is a 76 and has a chevy v8 conversion and it has SOA. It appears to have Dana axles.
Serial number.... 8503 180971
I was curious if the tub is aftermarket or something else. It looked like someone started some body work on it before this place got it. its pretty stripped now.
What years did the Jeep stampings change? I know that there was that one in all caps, then in about the same position but a different font and only the J was capitalized. I know '76-mid 84 was Jeep lower on the panel then from then on to '95 it was Joop. I swear that I've seen pics of some '75's with the Jeep in the lower position like the '76 and up has though.
'85 CJ-7 Laredo currently under construction.
