So, I've been confused about the whole CJ5's in Pakistan deal for some time now. It is to my understanding that CJ5's were made here as well, under the Naya Daur name. But, how do you tell them apart? How do you tell whether your CJ is American made, local made, a Chinese import, or just a modded M38a1?
For example, the picture I'm attaching is of a local military junkyard. The Jeep in question is most probably military, but its a RHD, and has the Jeep logo...which M38a1's don't. Could it be possible that the military has been using the "Jeep" CJ5 instead of the military-spec M38a1? and if so, where is this RHD variant made...locally or outside the country?
And more importantly, how do you tell a Naya Daur apart from a foreign made CJ5?
Can't be an M38a1. They don't have a "Jeep" logo on the side. And from the pic posted by the other guy, the vehicle doesn't seem to have those recessed headlights that are present on the M38a1, but not on the CJ.
But, if this is indeed a CJ5, then the logo doesn't really mesh with the rest of the vehicle. After 1970, CJ5's saw their gas tank shifted to the back -- unlike this vehicle. But, the logo font on this Jeep is found post '75 CJ's i.e. the upper and lower case lettering.
Do you see the predicament I'm in!? :p
The issue may seem trivial, but I'm sure that if I can ID this Jeep, I can ID my Jeep as well
