1970 Postal body on a pre-72 CJ5 frame. So left hand drive frame with a right hand drive postal body. Picked it up from Bessemer Michigan a week ago.
Missing motor (just picked up an AMC 360). It needs a rear drive shaft. Its got the offset to the right rear axle, just found out yesterday after looking that it was a dana 44! Twin stick of some sort transfer case, I'm assuming dana 18. And thats all I know so far.
Looking at 2.5" wide leaf conversion (wrangler leafs) with somewhere around 4" of lift. Going to run 33's and a rear locker. It currently has 36x14.5" tires. Will build a cage and box the frame this winter. Get the steering mounted up on the left and whatever else to make it drivable. Thats about it for now.
I checked it out yesterday really for the first time. It was rainy when picking it up and I dropped it off about 20 miles from my house at my dad's. I'm really happy with how solid the frame is on this! The body is in pretty decent shape too, plenty for a wheelin rig.
Need to figure out what tranny this is…
The gas tank will likely be cut into the floor and mounted on the triangulation here in the back. I'll put a piece of steel and weld it for a base
So I'm quite happy after checking it out today. And excited to get it together and wheeling next year.
