    Something doesn't seem right with the tub's Jeep stamping. This one has a "JEEP" instead of an intermediate stamping of "Jeep".

    No side marker lights and looks repainted. Note the climate control knobs. Other dash mounted items appear to have over spray.

    I think 75 was the year it went from JEEP to Jeep. We had that discussion on here one time but I don't remember the exact outcome....
    I do agree that it's been repainted, they should have taken an extra two minutes to tape the heater knobs :lol:

    I don't think that is a 75 tub. Radiator support bracket looks older, has a 76 and up master cylinder , in 75 the J eep stamping was even with the bottom of the door. Nice Jeep, just does not look right. Tail lights are 76 and up also.

    FWIW my ‘73 has the “Jeep” stamping on it. I’d have to upload a pic tomorrow but I believe it to be the original tub.

    I think that is a 70 or 71 tub, no evidence of a fuel filler on the side, and i know our 72 had Jeep not JEEP.

    My old '72 had "Jeep" in the lower position. I'll agree with homersdog above. I don't think this Jeep is as original as they are representing.

    not from what i see. that's a '75, with same-sized reservoirs, not unequal like '76 and up. it appears to be exactly the same as the one in my '75.

    the tub/fenders have clearly been reworked/replaced/repaired. windshield frame looks correct, w/outside wiper motor. the grille is from '72 - '75 (or at least the parking lights/turn signals are, with three screw attachment vs later two screw).
