I bought one of these. Looks like it came with CJ2A Windshield hinge pivots instead of CJ3b. I compared the ones on this tub to ones from my old CJ3b tub this replaced and they are absolutely different. Using the ones that came with this tub the windshield frame will not sit in the correct position, and the cowl seal won't seal against the cowl. The original 3b pivots, the pivot bolt is about 1/4-3/8 of an inch closer to the front of the jeep.

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Please give us a call and we can help you. Thank you!

Will the CJ3B body tub work/fit/replace on the 54 Mitsubishi Jeep which is right hand drive?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
I would have to say no.

How much to ship the cj3b body tub to Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada? As a second option, could I get it shipped to Minot N.D. so I can drive down and pick it up there?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
No, we cannot ship freight shipments out of the lower states. If you have a freight forwarder in the states we can ship it there but you would have to figure logistics from there.

We can ship these anywhere inside the 48 states for free. International on the body tubs is not possible.

Do you know what the tub weighs?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
These are approx 400 pounds crated.

I know about the mounting and dash holes; what are the toe board holes?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
The area where your pedals come thru the floor board.

hello, I'm living in Japan currently and bought a 1977 j54 Mitsubishi Jeep. It is a short wheelbase (2032 mm) the same as the cj-3b Willys. The people i bought it from painted over the rust so. I couldn't see the rust and now ifs falling apart. I will be moving back to the USA soon. I was wondering if you have to make a new one just for me or if you have some in stock that i can order. Also if you have to make it from scratch how long will it take to finish and ship? Thank you V/R Dominic Trettenero

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
We do carry body panels and complete tubs to help out. Email

Hello! I have a 1964 CJ3B... do all the holes come pre-drilled for this late model? Or do I have to do drilling? If so, what holes would I have to measure/drill? Sorry for the questions, but need the info to start preparing for the work. Thanks!

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Youll need to drill body mounting holes and toe board holes as well dash. Please call and ask for Mike M. Happy to go over.

Are the cowl side panel steps installed?

Yes, that is correct.
