    Your avatar appears to have an M38a1 grill. If this is your jeep in your avatar, are you sure you don't have an m38a1?

    Probably not worded clearly. Just looking for the right tub for the right year and wondering how long things like the battery box cover lasted in the production years.

    What year is the body from on what you currently have titled? I assume you are titling it by the frame number?

    Titled as a 67…tub was replaced at some point. The rest of the Jeep is earlier. Where on the frame might I locate the frame number?

    On top of the frame on the passenger side just a little bit in front of the firewall.
