View Full Version : CJ3A Identification

:confused: I'm looking to maybe buy a 53' CJ3A but that year seems to be some differences. If it's a real M38 would it have the flat fenders in the front or rounded? Also, would it have the spare tire mounted on the side or the back?

The M38 has flat fenders. The M38A1 is the round fender. Most of them I have seen have the spare mounted on the back. The M38 should also have the axe and shovel indentations on the passenger side.
