CJ stuff on YJ frame

Hey guys...I have a CJ with a bent and relatively rusty frame. I have the oportunity to pick up a YJ frame for free. I am not farmiliar with the YJs and want to get an idea what I would be getting into if I swapped all my CJ stuff (body, engine, tranny, axles, gas tank, steering setup) on the YJ frame. I know there is some fab work there, but I was just trying to get an idea how much.

Basically the frame and suspension would be YJ but everything else would be CJ. Am I looking for trouble here or is it possible? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

Re: CJ stuff on YJ frame

so you are gonna swap you cj tub onto the yj frame ? not too sure but the axles on the yj were different widths than the cj the gas tank is different and i think the tub mounts might have to be reworked but it is doable just take your time and dont rush it
