Cant order a new one unless I know where this on came from.

    Looks to me like the oval is custom made. Rest of it appears to be standard early CJ5.

    I've never seen one with that oval raised cutout. I'm guessing it was fabricated by a previous ovner, but looks well done.

    Obliviously been modded, stock covers are pretty much identical with some minor changes made for the factory four speed option.

    What type of transmission is in it? There's been a number of posts here on making covers fit various types, they might give you some idea of how to proceed with a new cover.

    Trans is a t98 well similar to t18, transfer case is d-18 small bore twin shifters, jeep was adapted to Buick 198 odd fire, I will look again but looking at it, it seamed like stamped metal with no seal. If he fabed it he was good.
