Also, while Double D Fab makes some great looking dash pieces, the OEM Jeep type has an incorrect location for the tachometer hole. It is not suppose to be where they have it located. It needs to be moved more the the left and on center line with the wiper switch.

It look like we really need a correct sample of dashes as well. I have been talking to some guys who were kind enough to provide their tubs to us but it might take a while to bring the whole tub back to the Philippines.

I'm now thinking maybe I can ask some people to bring some loose parts to the PA meet that I can bring home with us. Like the dashes and windshields.

The sooner we can get them, the sooner we can correct them

We're thinking of giving nice discounts at the PA event and even more if we fill up a container with new orders.

I am so excited for this announcement.

I am glad to announce that because of this thread, and Keith's pictures (Keith you are a godsend):





We are now implementing the correct rear splash pan/tailgate support or as we call it the rear crossmember.

Our old one was straight and did not have a depression to make way for the gas tank.

check out this old and new picture:



and check out our new implemented change side by side with the original.:



Guys, Again I thank you for all your help. And as promised I will implement all the changes and corrections that you will share with me and the rest of the Jeep community in this forum!!

Rommel, can I bring my tub on a trailer and swap it for an improved one?

And yes, I'm very impressed too at the speed you're moving on implementing the improvements.

Any progress on the throttle cable pass-thru and reinforcing rib on the firewall? That's another one that will cover all CJ-5, CJ-7 and CJ-8 tubs 1976-1986. Probably best to get the changes made first that affect all tubs then branch out into the variants that only ran a couple model years later on.

That's great news for the CJ-5,7 and 8 rear crossmember! That was a PITA to change out at the time.



How about the captive nuts housed inside that panel that are used for mounting the tailgate hinges? You make them a 3/8-16 threaded, which is incorrect, where they should be 5/16-18 thread.

I had to drill them out and tap for a threaded insert to accept the 5/16-18 Flathead Torx Screw which is the most common size thread for anything bolted to the body like windshield frame, steel doors and tailgate.

Like many have said before, I commend you Rommel for being proactive to improve your product. It is refreshing to see a manufacturer actively engaged with their customers.

I would love to come visit the facility the next time I am in the Philippines. I will probably be there in 2014. My wife is from Bacolod City in Negros. Her brother works in Manila for a pharmaceutical company so we usually stay a week or so with him.

I need for my cousin, Ryan Gamboa a ABS-CBN newscaster in Negros, to get a hold of you guys. He is currently working on a CJ-3B. He received it from his late father.

Hi Chris,

Come over anytime! And please give me Ryan's number. If it's an American CJ3b I'll make a deal with him for the tub. I need a nice CJ3b sample

Bacolod is a great place! Great food and fun parties!

Rommel

Hey Rommel, was just checking out your Facebook page. Lots of cool stuff on there! I really liked the original footage of them putting the wire cutters on the WW2 jeeps.
