Can anyone tell me where I can find frame specs / measurements with a side view for a 1973 CJ5. I have located top views but can not locate a side view with the measurements. Thanks

I believe that there is one in the old Chiltons Jeep CJ manual. By old I mean one of the smaller sized printings, not the newer ones that are the same size as the Hayes manuals. It could be in the newer one too but I donít have one to check. I have my house on the market right now so much of my reference materials are in storage to alleviate some of the clutter or I would scan it for you but maybe you can put your hands on one. Not sure where the frame shops get their specs but maybe an independent shop could help out.

Thats what I need just need the pre 76 version. I was told that 72 - 75 were identical frames with straight rails. I found top view with measurments but can not find a side view which is what I really need. Thank you for these ones, do you know if the side view / measurments would be the same for all 70's cj's?

This doesn't have the measurement call-outs, but it does show the way the frame is designed. maybe you can work with it some?
