yj body on cj frame

has anyone heard of this. is it possible. does anyone on this board have it done.

Driving off-road needs to be done well, like throwing a fly at a rising trout in dark, calm waters. Take pride in the task, and the reward is more than the destination.

Re: yj body on cj frame

yes very possible.. i believe only 4 mounts dont line up... not the front ones.. but the next two sets.. Elusive has a yj fiberglass tub on a cj frame.. well had.. its now on a tj frame.. he had some steel piece that bolted across those body mounts.. with holes in it... to bolt the body too..
also the gas tank filler is on the opposite side.. but other than that.. they are estenially the same..
i have a cj tailgate.. cj gas tank.. with my yj frame and body..

Re: yj body on cj frame

Yup, it's possible...
I currently have a '91 YJ tub on my '84 CJ frame. I used the CJ tailgate, so if you didn't know what to look for, you'd never know it was a YJ tub.
There's a writeup on my webpage (link below) and there are some links to others YJ/CJ tubswap pages.
Good luck,

Re: yj body on cj frame

which front clip do you have, I think that's my biggest concern, I like the yj front over the cj

Re: yj body on cj frame

Most people perfer the cj clip to the YJ, that's the usual preferance.

Re: yj body on cj frame

Stalled in the middle of a similar project.Only one set of mounts does not line up,the ones right in front of the rear wheels.Have to relocate fuel filler tube,I guess most guys just spin the tank 180 degrees.I cut the filler hole in the cj location and covered the yj hole with diamond plate.Body mount bolts are different size also,so make sure you get the body bushing/lift for the body you are using.
