Default tub

Your request is a little odd, in that you are asking for a tub that won't fit a CJ5 frame...... The wheelbase is considerably shorter on a CJ5. Possibly the reason that replies are not coming your way.

Whats wrong with the tub you have now?

You will be surprised how many people have done builds replacing most of the steel to use the same tub on here and other jeep sites.

You are talking about finding a 32 year old Michigan tub that is not rotted for $300 in better condition then you have now. Most people would jump on that or sell it to a buddy so they could build something before selling it for $300.

Look in the part out section sometimes a late model cj-5 will come up. For the most part these fetch between 500-1000 depending on the condition. You may be able to find a rolling chassis with a better tub then you have now then part it out to make up for the added cost.

I am just trying to say you need to be realistic. Look over your tub and consider what needs to be replaced.
What are you using this thing for? If it is something that will be a daily driver consider a repo tub from willys overland or some other place. If you simply don't know or want to weld in new floors consider asking for help and getting advise.

Your best bet is going to be going out of state like down in GA or TN or something like that. Between the fuel and everything else you are still over a grand. A Willy's overland repo tub can be picked up at there location in Toledo Ohio. It is probably the best replacement you can get outside of a southern tub.

If you do not care about the body style and just want something that fits to run this is a great deal. I would not be surprised if it is not sold by now.

Maybe you could take whats left of this old CJ 5 and make your self a better body. $300 would buy whats left.
