needing pre \'72 CJ frame (in NW)

I'm looking for a pre '72 CJ5 frame in Oregon or southern Washington. I could also use a frame off of a flatfender. It would be really cool if I could find a M38 frame. I won't be picky, the frame just has to have been made before '72 for me to make it work. I need a good frame to slide under this CJ2a of mine.

thanks,

a postal jeep has a short fender front clip and i suppose the same lenght frame as you need, i parted one out once, the frame was boxed and pretty good, they did mount the rear springs outside the frame. (fyi, they also have 30 spline flanged shaft, Dana 44 that are the same with as any narrow track CJ)

Just get the dimensions, or copy your existing frame and build one from 2x4x.1875 tubing. It would be a lot tougher, and you could take pride in the fact that you built it yourself. If I had my 59' CJ5 apart, I would give you that frame, I am building an extended frame for it, but that project is down the road quite a few months (i.e. probably a couple of years).
