1981-1986 Jeep CJ8 Scrambler
Our bobbed version of the Jeep CJ8 body #5040 has 12 removed from the back end and fits model years 1981-1986. Although this body is 12 shorter it will work with your stock frame and stock wheel base length. This body like all of our bodies is constructed from 5052 marine grade aluminum alloy that is 5/32(.156) in thickness. This body has a wheelbase of 103-1/2.
On the firewall we scribe the cutout locations for the brake master cylinder, steering column and main electrical connector. We do not cut these locations but rather leave it up to the end user. The reason that we dont cut these holes is because of the feedback that we have received from the Jeep community. A lot of the Jeep owners run aftermarket components and because of this they would rather start with a blank canvas instead of having a firewall full of holes that they will not be using.
We also do not cut or mark the locations for the cowl vent, fuel filler, taillights etc. The location of these components will be left up to the end user. Our bodies do not include any nut-inserts so when it comes to mounting components you will use the nut and bolt method. We recommend the use of stainless steel hardware when it comes to fastening parts to our body. Our replacement body is made to work with your factory Jeep parts such as the doors, windshield frame, hardtop, dashboard, tailgate, fenders, etc. If you are running the factory Jeep shorty hardtop on our #5040 body your factory steel bulkhead will not fit. You will need to use our aluminum bulkhead model #5190.
