    If you want to drop the V6 right in then you'll need a frame from a 66 - 71 as they were the only years for the V6. If want to weld in your V6 motor mounts, then any frame back to '55 should work though the, and someone correct me if I'm wrong, 55 and maybe 56 frames had reverse shackles. These are hard to come by but just something to be aware of.

    Keep in mind that the M38A1 frame is the same size as the CJ only stronger in many areas. It also has the reverse shackles.

    I used an M38A1 frame for my '67 CJ. It lacks the center mounted grille support. But that can be fabbed. I used engine mounts from Novack Conversions.

    Don't forget the postal frames they will work with some fab work. They are boxed but you will have to put in the motor mounts front cross member and rear springs are different. Just another thought!
