    I know it is not a bolt on, but how much difference is there to put a M38 tub on a CJ2a frame? I am not using suspension or steering from CJ2a, that is going to be updated.

    When I change out the tub on the MB5 I'll look to go M38. The large tunnel opening makes it a plus.

    I have a repop tub going on a late flatfender frame. Only looks like one mount on the ps to be moved. Assuming the repop hat channels are reasonably correct.

    It will bolt right on. All the body mounts are the same.
