How do I find out the year and model of Jeep I have. All I have is the rolling chassis. I pulled the covers off the front and rear pumpkins and they say 1971. But a friend of mine who knows quit a bit about jeeps said it is a 65 or 66. It has the steering box on the frame right underneath the driver. It also has the brake fluid right below the drivers side as well. I have no body for it. I am wanting to order a suspension lift for it but they said the need to know what model it is. CJ 5, 3a ,2 or what ever else it could be. the front end is a model 27 and the rear is a dana 44. It has the buick V-6 motor in it I think it has a T-18 tranny, Have no clue what the transfer case is. Looks like it has PTO capabilities. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try going to this page:
Measure the wheelbase also, that will give you a clue.

You say the steering box is UNDER the driver? If the driving position is right on top of (beside) the engine, and the floor mounted brake pedal is IN FRONT of the front axle, what you have is a Jeep FC ("Forward Control") chassis. That was a cab-over design originally built on a CJ-5 chassis (FC-150, IIRC it was 150" overall length -- only 12.5' bumper to bumper). For more on those go to Scroll down to near the center of the page and click on the FC-150, FC-170, or FC-170DRW boxes.
