"JEEP" logo on side panel

Rommell,

Why do some of the new replitubs have "JEEP" embossed on the side panel and others don't. The new replacement side panels now have "JEEP" on them. When will or will... the new tubs have JEEP on them?

Thanks, Wally

There are some holes already on the firewall.
Heater Motor
A/C hose access
Heater core tubes
Speedometer cable
Steering wheel
Brake booster/mc
Upper plenum drain hole
Heater fan drain hole
E-brake mounting holes
Electrical bulk connection (must be enlarged for later years)

Holes that need to be made.
Battery tray
Heater box mounting
Throttle cable
MCU (if still using)
Clutch pedal rod (optional if you have an Automatic)
Small holes for mounting wiring loom

Tubs without the 'Jeep' logo are cheaper by about $500.00. Royalties must be paid to Chrysler who 'owns' the Jeep name and is the reason Jeep stamped body panels cost more.

Hope that helps and maybe Rommel will add some.

That part looks ok, but what about the wheelhouses and the baffles in the wheelhouses? Also has the angled square hole for the throttle cable been added?

Rommel,

You have done so much good with these replitubs and I am impressed.

Can you let us know if you plan any more changes such as to fix the inside door area so it matches more closely the original, door striker plates, wheelhouses and baffles and the firewall with the angled holes?

Or at least let us know your future plans with the CJ8 bodies forward.

Thanks, Wally

The following are the improvements we've made so far for CJ8 as well as the pictures of our tub showing the length against the original. Our present production is 1/8" short. We our now fixing our main assembly jig to ensure the correct length of every tub produced.

CJ8 Replitub

Rommel,

I've heard that the side panel metal where the doors close (inside) is bent differently than the original and that there is something with the striker plates?

Can you elaborate on this area? Do you have pics of this as well.

Thanks, Wally

The CJ8 tubs that are out now have all the corrections already.

I heard the doors and tops fit well.

Cheers,
Rommel

Looks great Rommel!!! The angled throttle cable hole would have been something very difficult to add in the field on an already built tub. Holes are easy to drill or cut but stamping the sheetmetal and reshaping it is rather difficult without specialized equipment.

Looks great and I might point out that you still need to add another indent/outdent for clearance of one of the heating units flap pivot shaft.



How about the hole for the washer fluid hose? Adding that in?

The electrical bulk head connector is also too small for the later model CJ's as well. The square opening needs to be enlarged to almost the same size as the steel overlay or reinforcement plate.



Your making headway though, and glad to see the improvements.

Hey everyone, quick question. We all know the difference between the "jeep" stamp on the side of the tub from an early cj5 and a 76 and newer cj5. Mine is a 75 and I always assumed it would've came with the older style stamping that was skinnier and higher up on the side. I was recently told that they changed the stamp somewhere in 1975. Does anyone know when this change occured or what serial numbers had the new stamping? Also mine has the vent on the cowl in front of the windshield, did that happen in 75 too? I'd like to keep it as authentic as I can, thanks for any help!

I thought 1974 was the last year for the higher up 'Jeep' stamping and the new 75 models, which would have come out in 74', had the new lower 'Jeep' font. AMC was gearing up for the new CJ-7 body as well during late 1974 and into 1975.

I missed this thread entirely!
This is VERY good, and Keith, you ROCK!

I have some experience in fabrications, and I can tell you there aren't very many companies at all that could respond this quickly or would pay attention to the end user like this.

THANK YOU JUAN!

I'm going to be needed a '73 CJ-5 tub and probably a '48 CJ 2B tub next summer.
I know who I'm buying from now since I just sat and read this entire thread!

I'm thinking about buying a CJ-8 (Scrambler) body and kicking the wheel tubs back for longer wheel base. Once built, moving the wheel tubs back is not out of the question for me, but I wasn't looking forward to doing that... AND everything else I've heard was wrong with them.
This makes it a no brainer for me.

Just wanted to say, great job, and were can I purchase the updated tubs in the US mid west?

Another question, is this the same company that makes these tubs in Stainless Steel or maybe aluminum? I saw a stainless tub for the CJ 2 a while back, almost purchased it then, but had some issues that cut cash short, but that doesn't mean I won't buy one for my spring/summer project if they are still available...

I would give it a little more time before purchasing the new and improved tubs. MD Juan is working on it but they have a ways to go yet. Some of the smaller detail items that were annoying still need to be implemented into the Repli-tubs but it is a 100% improvement over the 2005 model tub that I own.

I met Rommel in West Chester PA during a discussion meeting of the Repli-tubs and they have a very positive outlook to resolve past issues... it just takes time to do.

I asked about the stainless steel version tubs that they produced and was informed that they would not be made again. They only made less than a dozen or so and it ruined some of their dies while pressing into shape. I can see their point in that matter, stainless is very tough to manipulate and form. It just not as easy as sheet metal.
