93 wrangler tub on 86 cj7 frame, which body lift?

I am rebuilding my 86 cj7 with a 93 tub. I am going to install a Daystar 1" body lift but I am not sure if I should order the kit for the 93 wrangler or the kit for the cj7. The wrangler kit is more expensive. I thought I need the wranlger kit because I thought the bolts were a bigger diameter but I am not sure (cj bolts were so rusted they looked like 1/4x20 hardware). Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. I relize that some modification will be needed but I would like the most direct approach with out cutting up the body.

I would order the YJ kit because the mounting bolts are bigger on the YJ

On my 84 CJ-7 with a '92 YJ tub, I went with the YJ body lift for the reason you mentioned, to get the correct bolts along with the kit. The bolt sizes are indeed different between the two bodies, so ordering the YJ kit will give you the correct size bolts.
