6. M38 (1950-53)
7. CJ6 Early (1955-75)
8. CJ6 Late (1976-81)
It will be very important to note, however, that the CJ7 encountered other changes that making a blanket tub to cover 1976-86 leaves us to have to make many modifications to fit.

1976-early '79 had the roll bar mounted to the sides of the tub, 1980 intro of the Dana 300 and light duty trannies brought the need for a larger transmission tunnel hole to cover the options of SR-4, T-4 and T-5 extended length transmissions, 1981 introduced the "B" pillar behind the door, the mid-'79-on roll bar mounted to the floor in front and wheelhouse in rear makes the rear wheelhouse baffles absolutely necessary (see my yellow circles from pictures). 1976-1977 had the smaller hole in the cowl for the heater system.

On a good note, your "Jeep" stamping on the body sides is 100% correct in font and position. Omix sources its replacement side panels from the Cobra King company and the "Jeep" stamping on those is entirely incorrect in size and font. Why Chrysler granted them the license to sell them like that is beyond me. The panels are also a thinner gauge than your tubs.

There should probably be three versions of CJ-7 tub:

CJ7 Early A: 1976-1977 due to the smaller cowl hole size

CJ7 Early B: 1978-1980 due to larger cowl hole but no B-pillar

CJ7 Late: 1981-1986 due to B pillar, enlarged transmission tunnel hole

Can anyone confirm when the indentations were added to the sides of the cowl below where the windshield hinges connect?

Is this the part you encircled in the picture?

All good points and accurate and I'm almost 99% sure the indentations were added beginning on late 1979 or early 1980 model year.

1976-1979 CJ-7 (no indentation)


1979-1986 CJ-7 (indentation and on the Repli-Tub)

No, the part that is missing is for supporting the Wheel House.



Wheel House Brace taken out of a "cheap" Taiwan made Wheel House.





Added to the Repli-Tubs by means of spot welding into place.

1 .CJ7 Late
2 .CJ5 Early, Version A
3 . CJ5 Early, Version B
4. CJ5 Late, Version B
5. CJ5 Late, Version A
6. M38
7. CJ6 Early
8. CJ6 Late

Cheers,
Rommel
I have in my fleet

CJ7 78 RHD x 2
CJ7 83 RHD
CJ6 74 RHD
CJ6 67 RHD
CJ5 74 RHD (its cut in half)

If its measurements you want then a trip down under will save a lot of time especially for RHD stuff. At least 2 of the tubs can be shipped out with you as well as the CJ5 Firewall section)

I'm curious if the RHD tubs are the same with the LHD tubs with the obvious difference of course of where the steering holes are located.

Would we be able to use it as a basis even for the LHD tubs?

Nope. Firewall is completely different. There are no similarities whatsoever, fuse box, blower etc. having said that there is one similarity, the carbon canister is on the left side whether right hand drive or wrong hand drive ( like that voodoo dude?) hehehe

There are differences with the firewall but as far as i can see the rest are the same. Even the seats are the same so the RH seat only slides and the LH seat moves forward like the US cars. Holes for foot park/handbrakes are still there on the LH. Dash panel is flipped but same mirrored layout. I do have a foot handbrake on the RH on some of my jeeps and the floor mount on my 83.

My 78 CJ has inprints of where the LHD stuff was to go but its not cut out. The fusebox is in the same LHD location.
