As I understand it, the CJ2A frame was changed at about midyear in the 1948 model year.  The biggest difference was a change in the frame thickness from 12 gauge to 11 gauge steel.  I think this change was made in preparation for the new CJ3A model. This new frame eliminated the gussets used to attach the front bumper used on the earlier frames.

We had another good workday today.  Started at 8:00 a.m. and finished up about 4:30 in the afternoon. Eric and Bobby cut, shaped and welded all day and when the dust settled the front truss was done, the steering ram was attached and most of the 4 link set up was tacked on. We've got another workday scheduled in a couple weeks, should have a rolling chassis when that's done.

Thanks Brian, I'm feeling good about our progress, these guys are great to work with, very talented. Yes, I think my old arms are going to like that steering. Wink

It rolls!  Great work today.  Eric, Bobby and John were hard at it.  Eric and Bobby worked on the frame and John got started on the body work. Center crossmember designed and built, rear truss done, rear 4 link in and the body is getting closer to paint.
