Re: information

You'd probably get a better response if you used a more descriptive title. I can't help with your question, sorry.

Re: information

I have a '78 FSM which has a frame diagram with body mount locations. It's probably the same as your '83. If you don't get a better response, send me a private and I'll scan and e-mail it to you.

Go to this web page http://www.geocities.com/Yosemite/1740/frames.html. It shows dimensions for CJ5/7/8 frames... Wranglers too! [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
