Tray thingy
 
What is the "tray" on the underside of a CJ tub on the drivers side rear? I have always wondered.

Exhaust heat shield?

Without a picture I'm clueless as to what your talking about. A measurement from a point to the "tray" might help.

I meant to get a picture today. I had my tub standing up on the firewall and had a perfect chance to take one. Its on my 83 7 and my 77 5.

Its about halfway back in the rear under the front of the rear seat mount. maybe 10" x 10" square and it is about 3/4" below the floor

Like Jeepwhore says, probably the muffler heat shield. Most likely Galvanized and not painted .
And inside the frame.

It's where the Haynes manual goes! No, maybe not. I did just go look at mine though and I see what you are talking about. Got me wondering.....Rob

You'll find that it matches where the high spot is on the rear pipe curve over the axle tube......AS said exhaust shield

Makes sense. Jeeps are known for their passenger comfort and I can see they spared no expense with this.
