Re: preping a frame for a frame swap-CJ

By all means, touch up any welds that look suspect. My '78 had a bunch of TERRIBLE welds.

Also cut about a 1" hole in the front crossmember where it ties to the frame rails so that you can stick a garden hose in there and flush muck out.

If the back crossmember doesn't have holes in it, cut them too.

A while ago there was a post titled "POR - good idea or not", or something close. I had just done a frame rebuild and had some suggestions. Search for "butt-joint" and you'll find it.
