YJ Bumpers fit on 84 CJ?

My CJ is just about back on the road and I am now in the process of trying to get a decent rear bumper with a swing away that will hold my 36" HMMWV spare. Most of the bumpers and swing aways I have found in searching that will hold a tire this big are listed for the YJ. I have looked at the spec sheets and it shows the dimensions are identical. Does this mean that I should be able to mount the bumper that is designed for an 87-91 YJ on my CJ? Thanx

Well if the dimensions are the same, my guess is yes.

I don't think so. The YJ frames are sevaral inches wider than CJ frames, so the mounts won't line up. You could get a YJ bumper and modify it to fit your frame, but with that much trouble, you might as well build what you want.

EVERYTHING's easy for the guy who doesn't have to do it.
