For the Column Shift T-90 internals only? Note that some DJ-3A shift linkage components can be used on the CJ-2A column shift.

If so Ben, the DJ3A components would require some modification to interchange....both with the shaft arms, and the steering column remote unit

the DJ3A setup is the same as the Jeepster....

CJ2 (Agrijeep test units) and CJ2A column shift linkages, shaft arms and remote control units were proprietary parts specific to the CJ2A only...... ONLY the CJ2A remote and lower side case arms have a special "offset" bent into them, unlike any other Willys column shift vehicle. And the parts for a CJ2A carry their own part number in the BOM and LNOP......

There is not much choice if one is short on parts to use. They are very obsolete and no longer found thru Jeep.

not directly available, you are correct.....

that is why i was fortunate enough to buy a jeep dealership in georgia out of 2a/3a stock a few years ago......

and in that buyout was a considerable amount of column shift parts..... if someone posts for column shift parts, and i see the post(s) in a timely manner, i try to make contact to see what is needed, then check my supply to see if i can help :)

in the future, if you come across column shift enquiries, please feel free to toss me in the loop :) I am all about helping to keep the column shift CJ2A alive :)

Happy 4th !!
