What to do with the new frame?

I have bought a `75 CJ5 frame that was stretched 10 inches. I have been thinking about wrangler springs and a CJ6 or a Wrangler tub. What do you guy thing of this idea? I was going to put it under "Lil Ug" my `62 CJ5.

Re: What to do with the new frame?

I bought this to replace the bent one under "Lil Ug" my `62 CJ5. I found out that it was cut and stretched 10" in the middle by the new body tab that is not drilled by the tires stack. The PO told me that he was going to put a Wrangler tub on it. I thought I could cut it back down but, he reinforced it really well. He put 3/16" angle iron across the cuts, then boxed it with 3/16" flat steel. I picked up for under $100.00 off of ebay [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]and it was here in the Denver area. So, now I need some ideas. L8r,
