    try matkins frames, they might not reveal the specs as there in the buisness of selling frames, but it's worth a shot. good luck, if you need just simple messurements i could tell you what you wanted to know,

      do a search on pirate4x4. for some reason i remember reading a few posts where guys built their own frames and they may have revealed the dimensions. or, i know that some people sell detailed prints of jeep frames on e bay, though i dont know of the quality.

          CJ5 Frame Build

          I have the original frame dimensions that they sell on Ebay, not a real lot of help. Do have a CJ5 Frame drawn on Autocad Software as I intend to build a frame close to stock.

          Know a lot of people would love to have dimensions to build a frame, I'll email my drawing to anyone but it's far from complete. It is to scale and what dimensions are there are accurate. I have a good bare 1976 CJ5 frame to measure from. (As well as a 1983 CJ7 Widetrack.)

          My intentions are to come up with a drawing for the side rails and have them bent correctly - or to what will work. Can get 3 x 4 x 3/8 rectangular tubing for $10.00 per foot but is it heavy!.

          Only other tough piece to fabricate would be the winch plate and that could come from a donor. Willing to put effort into this but would like any suggestions on ways to improve the frame ahead of time.

 if anyone would like this drawing in DRAFT form.
