YJ tub on CJ frame

I finally have given up on chasing the rust monster and my search for a wrangler tub is in progress but I have one question on which body bushings to use? Does it matter?

if its clean, I aint having fun!

Re: YJ tub on CJ frame

I'm pretty sure you can use either CJ or YJ body bushings. When I did my tubswap, I believe I used CJ poly bushings and a YJ 1" body lift so that I could get the body bolts with the correct threads. In a couple of the areas the CJ and YJ use different size body mount bolts.

Hope that helped...

You can use either, but if you go YJ you'll need to slightly enlarge the holes in the body mount brackets on the frame.
