Looking for OEM top bows, door frames, and OEM side steps for 1950 CJ3a, and/or 1962 CJ5.

I have a set of orig 3B bows that I purchased from Larry on the site here. I've had them professionally sand blasted and primed. Then I sprayed them with 4 coats of OD green. They're in serviceable condition, hanging in my garage. I've since bought an entire aftermkt bow and top set from Jamie. So will not be using the OEM bows. I don't know if they're compatible. If you determine they'll meet your needs, I'll see what I have in them and you're welcome to them. I'm @ 903 216-5445.

Thanks for getting back to me. What year 3B were they for? I'll have to do some checking to see if they are the same as either the 3A or early CJ5.

My 3b is a '54 vintage, but I believe everything from '53 on thru mid 60s in 3b was the same. AFA -A or CJ5, I do not know. The CJ5 is longer than the 3b, so it may not fit.
3 guys who I'd refer you to who will probably know, Larry Steed on the site here. He's had several 2/3 As & Bs over the years. Also, Ken 'Oldtime' on the site here..knows everything about everything 3b and then Harry Sheets w/ Midwest Willys @ 765 362-2247. @ least one of if not all 3 of these guys will be able to answer regarding compatibility w/ 3a and cj5.

They are the same. Door frame would be different

Gunship, if the guy who asked about them is not interested due to fitting issues, I would be interested in them.

No problem Bob. I spoke w/ Jamie, who was w/ Larry Steed over the wkend and they've identified them as compatible to 2/3A. There has been no follow up from DaveB this week.. My cell is 903 216-5445 if you'd like to call and discuss. I have pics of the set on my phone that I can email @ any time.

Gunship, I sent you a personal email to let you know I was interested. Guess you didn't get it.

Bob, the bows are on the market if you are interested. My cell is 903 216-5445 if you'd like to discuss.
