I have had two 48 CJ2As which were built on the 3A style frames. I assume both were late 48 production. Both of these Jeeps had the later style steering box and cross member.

The only difference I found between these frames and the ones used for the 3A / M38 is the engine stands are not offset as they are on the ones used for the later engine plate.

 
If you can't get there in a Jeep you don't need to be there

Oldpappy,
I agree that the difference between the late 2A frame and the 3A frame is the offset motor mounts, but to keep things clear...

There are some distinct differences between the 3A frame and the M38 frame.  Your response appears to suggest that they are the same.
1- 1946 CJ2A   
2- 1949 CJ3A
