What followed me home

946 15
So I picked up this frame yesterday. I was told it was a CJ5, he thought it was a 73 but from what I can tell it is pre 71, Wheelbase is 81". I would like to start with what do I really have so I can try to figure out what I am going to do with it. The frame is rock solid, hell of a lot better then my TJ. Any info would be great and any suggestions on what route I should take to make it whole. I would like to lift it with at least 35" tires and maybe a V8 of some sort. But if the frame is not up to the task or if is best to restore it back to a more original state that is an option too. I got it cheap and just want to have fun with it with the family. Thanks Steve

Based on the looks of that frame, I'd say you are very close to narrowing it down to it being a 1954-64 frame. 59' model year based on the serial number you found. It could be a CJ-5 or a CJ-6 and you will need to measure for dimensions.
Try using the frame photo below and measure it against the dimensions given below the frame drawing.
