Mike- Acknowledge answer regarding MB or GPW kit adapting to the CJ2A frame. .Also "some drilling required". Will the CJ2A front seat frames and under seat fuel tank and exhaust system also install with "some drilling"?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
The main issue you'll have is the T84 v. the T90 transmission. The T90 has a higher shift tower so clearance will have to be made. Keep in mind the MB/GPW had a stepped gas tank and the CJ-2a was flat bottomed. Just things like this.

Can this body tub be shipped to Canada? This picture looks as like there is no passenger side glove box, is this so or does it have a passenger side glove box? if it can be shipped what would the approximate cost be? If it can't be shipped where could it be picked up, any chance of Washington or somewhere in the north west, close to the southern border of British Columbia?

Willys Tech:
We can only ship these to a US based address. Typically people in Canada have them shipped to a freight forwarder.

Can a MB body be put on a CJ2a chassis? or better yet will it fit?

Willys Tech:
Yes it will but you will have to enlarge the hole for the transmission top shifter due to the size of the T90 top shift vs. the T84.

What is the difference between a GPW and a MB?

Willys Tech:
One is made by Willys (MB) the other by Ford (GPW). Other than that they really are made to the same specs.

What is the difference between this body kit and the 42-45 mb kit A12237?

Willys Tech:
There is really very little difference. The well for the gas tank are different for the small mouth tank v. the large mouth tank.
