The frame is a M38A1 frame. It's 4 inches longer than the 2a...thats giving me fits right now. Just decided to section the body behind the seat and streach it to fit, need to anyway to accomodate the drivetrain but didn't want to mess with the body. If all goes as planned the streach should be unnoticable unless you know what you are looking for. Not a big fan of the mega-streach flatties.

The front is a dana 30 widetrack and the rear is a dana 44 from a 69 800a Scout. Plan to start a build thread one of these days...

Thats basically what I did. More to the beginning of this thread I posted pics of my yellow 3B on a cj5 frame. most people cant really tell but mine has a mount on the front cross member for the 5/m38a1 grill that I didnt remove. I cut off all the body mounts from the frame and moved them where the flaty ones were with the body all the way to the back of the frame.

I see...you put the extra to the front, great idea. I decided to streach it behind the seats to give me a bit more leg room. I'll stretch the tub to the length of a cj5 so that I can use a cj5 soft top on it.

Thats how I should have done it in retrospect. I look like a half open can of biscuits driving mine.

Some real nice Jeeps in here!

Here is my '53 CJ3A. I've had it for 8 years or so. Bought it from a guy whose kids drove it into the woods, smashed it up, and left it for dead. It had a broken frame when I picked it up. I did a couple different Rustorations over the years (Rustorations because Restoration is definitely not the right word). I swapped all the parts to another frame I picked up. It's basically stock, but i've made little improvements here and there.

-2.5" rancho springs, hung with home made shackles
-rebuilt my T90 with T90C gears for the lower 1st and 2nd
-just rebuilt my Lhead: .030" bored, hardened valve seats, ported, etc...must be 61hp by now
-built my own header and intake

It goes pretty well for what it is...and I'll be keeping the stock motor forever because it's gutless enough to keep the parts together!

I'm digging the intake/exhaust manifold, that is PIMP! Did you build it
or buy it, and from who?

Thanks. I built it from scratch, from a bunch of J bends that I bought. It was pretty time consuming, but worth the effort. I got sick of the stock manifolds always cracking or leaking (I swapped 2 or 3 before deciding to just make my own header). It took quite a while to get it to fit right and clear everything, but I'm real happy with the way it turned out.

Did it make any difference on how the motor runs?

looks pretty cool! I have a 44 MB that was built almost the same way, I had it 2 hours and then rolled it. Wish I had time to rebuild it, that SBC 400 was fun as hell in an otherwise stock flatty! Here is how it sits now.
