    Are they out there? Hard to find? I imagine they are specific (or "splific" as Eddie says) to the B and nothing else interchanges. Thanks

    I've seen a half top (hardtop) on a 3b before, but I'm not sure if it was a factory produced top for that model. It had a fixed windshield frame, and a sheetmetal fairing (about 4") to bring the cowl sides flush with the rest of the body. I think the windshield glass was the same width as a CJ5.
    From the upper windshield down, it looked like a Dj3a full hardtop (the type with the fiberglass top cap), only half length. The half top had a metal top cap.
    It was not a pleasing look on that poor 3b.

    :lol: I can only imagine. Ugly gets uglier. But, if I put a plow on this B for the winter, I'm gonna want some cover and heat and prefer to heat the smallest area possible.

    Should have kept the full 3B hard top I had and just cut it in half.

    I have a half cab. It came off a 3A, the top went right on my 3B and required very little tin work in mating the doors to my windshield frame. It's been off and laying outdoors for a while. Glass is intact,windows roll up, junior west coast mirrors, lockable door latches and needs some tin straightened.

    One of my favorite wheeling trips ever was around Towanda, back in '94-ish. (y)

    I’ve always had a thing for the real honest looking 3bs like that red one someone posted recently. I test drove one once that a guy had for sale in a mining town here in Montana, Virginia city. It was cool but at the time I was searching for a Cj5 and didn’t pull the trigger.

    Interesting side note when I called the guys number I was standing in front of the 3b reading the number off the for sale sign. He says keys are under the seat take it for a ride and call me back. I thought that was cool, and trust worthy.

    MrT..........ever come south from Towanda? You're about 4 hours from me. Do you have the filler panel that extends from the bed up to the bottom of the half cab?

    3B a runnin.........can you PM me with what part of Virginia you're in?

    I like that green B with the hard top and trailer.
