What was this for

Just got me cj7 on my homemade rotisserie and noticed this shelf under the floorboards. What in heck would it have been used for.

Doubling down - that is an exhaust heat shield. It corresponds to the location where the exhaust passes over the driver's side rear axle.

Could be.

The factory exhaust had another heat shield just forward of there, mounted on top of, and covering, the rear silencer. This is often missing from aftermarket exhaust systems.

I see that Kevin commented on the welded on body lift. I thought someone would comment. It was not me. It is obvious that you guys can open the pictures. Can anyone tell me why I can’t. It says “blocked imagine” when I view my post. I am using my iPhone 8. I would like to continue my build on this site.

Yes, that is what I believe it is. The floor can get really hot from exhaust system heat transfer

39abb07c-4a99-4b80-8108-17af4318e13a_1563423893815.jpgI am trying to source out a site to buy some structural supports for my tub. See the rotted out ones in the pic. Tried Omix-Ada , Morris 4X4, and Quadratic. No luck

I would source a rust free tub from the states or get a reproduction tub. You will be money ahead by the time you are done. That rust looks bad and I bet there is more in places you cannot see and rust that is covered by paint.

To me, that tub is not worth saving and you will save money buying a replacement tub in the long run.
Classic Enterprises may sell the floor supports you seek. I know they have them for the early CJ's.

Classic Enterprises should have what you’re looking for but as Keith stated it might not be worth trying to save that tub. It will, most likely, only get worse as you start taking it apart.

I agree a replacement tub would have been smart. However I am in way, way to deep to change plans. I have all the new floor pans, rear side panels. I built a rotisserie. I bought an Esab mig with the pulse feature and easy grind wire. I bought a Hypertherm plasma cutter. And I have watched on utube copious mig welding and body repair videos. Plus I am retired and love a challenge.
