Just brought home a 1948 Jeep in a Box. Literally. The frame is in pretty fair shape except the front crossmember was replaced with steel "u" channel and the frame is now 1" wider at the front than the rear (29" rear-30" front). Removing the added steel and replacing the crossover with OEM hopefully takes care of that. However, not sure where to find an OEM front crossover for the 1948 CJ2A? This is my starting point, to restore the frame ready for chassis/drive system, with finding more discoveries of missing or bad components? I have my own amateur machine shop having restored several antique motorcycles, this is a first 4 wheel vehicle...must replace the "two wheels of life"....dual sport bikes; with a true American adventure! Looking forward to learn and share with you, whom I have much to learn from and I appreciate your sharing that experience and knowledge.
