That's rediculous! You could float a tub there from the Philippines.

The first one is the B pillar side / door support at the rear of the door opening, beside the roll bar, on the 80's model CJ-7's. I'm not sure which all models use this besides those. It's an odd shaped piece that is stamp molded and hard to replicate by hand. The bottom portion of it is a common rust area for these models.

The second suggestion is a smaller piece but also has a left and a right side. The area is in the floor pan directly above the traverse support piece where the tranny tunnel drops down to two levels, the one under the front seats and the front floor level. You can see it in the pic above on the floor pans leaning that are facing us, and more specifically in this picture below.

Just a suggestion for another product to offer. I have yet to see another vendor offering these anywhere and none of the replacement floor pans offered include that corner area. You would corner the market.

The only problem with those pieces from MD Juan is that they are not quite wide enough to duplicate the OEM version. They also lack the correct threaded hole for the seat belt retract mechanism. They come in at 5/16" or 3/8" threaded holes when they should be 7/16-20 threaded holes. Also missing on the drivers side are the small 6-32 or 8-32 threaded holes to hold the wire loom plastic conduits. Very difficult to get in there even with a right angle drill to make the holes. I was able to drill about two of them before resorting to double-sided-tape.

For two; with an advisor's stipend, free food and lodging, and some complimentary tourist attraction action!

Rommel- I gotta say, I have been reading this thread from the beginning. The interaction here has really changed my mind regarding how you guys do things. I was under the impression (as were many here I am sure) that these replacement parts were haphazardly hammered out of whatever you could get your hands on, with little care for fitment, quality control, or ease of use for the consumer. Because of your effort here, and the promised improvements to your products, I would definitely consider buying CJ parts from you company in the future (I don't need 'em right now). Thanks for caring. Don't let us down!

Chris

Nice looking group you got there!
