Wider springs on `62 CJ5?

I just got this frame to replace the bent and frankensteined repaired frame on the `Lil Ug'. My questions are, 1. Is how hard is it to go with Wrangler springs at this point? 2.What is involved? Thanks,

if the frame is the same as your original than you will need new perches front and rear new shackle mounts front and rear new spring mounts for the axles and if you were thinking of going spring over now would be the time if i have missed anything someone please chime in

Re: Wider springs on `62 CJ5?

I have a set of wrangler spring to do the same swap. I put th esprings on over the old ones and they seem to fit if you put new brackets in. The mount that is closest to the middle of th ejeep will have to pushed bac ka bit, but it should work.I was looking at it and i think i will try just bolting the braket onto the frame like the original mounts were. I wouldnt think the bracing would be needed since the orignal frame didnt have any. I could be wrong, but i will try it!!
