No problem mate.
If you go go advance search on Google, you can put in Jeepforum.com as where to search!
But shelling out the membership is worth it for all the other benefits too

Oh oh.
They are easy enough to fix with the tub off though, and you will never have an issue with a seized bolt afterwards huh?

Tub Swapping

Just figured I'd post my question here about which tubs styles can be put on a YJ frame. I posted it on the main, but figured I might get a better response in here. So if anyone is interested, please reply and let me know which tub styles and how difficult the swap is. Thanks.

Tub styles?
You mean a TJ tub onto a YJ frame?
If so, why?

First of all, thank you for the great write-up. I did what you said and it worked very well. The only thing I would recommend to anyone thinking of removing the tub is, don't start without an impact gun. You will just damage the heads and have a hell of a time later trying to remove them once you buy the above said the above impact.
Another thing I tested after reading on the forum, broken chassis bolts can be easily be removed by heating the nuts with a torch, and the broken studs can be easily removed with a stud extracter, a vice-grip or a monkey wrench.

Good observation tdewit, and one I took for granted
I use the impact so often, I totally missed mentioning it in the thread! It is just like working on the rig without a cold beverage at hand

Thinking of pulling my '90 tub off for some repair work. Will the nose come off as a clip?

I am doing the same. I need to replace both floor pans and do a lot of fabricating to replace rust. I want to say thanks for all the info it is a huge help and made simple for us.

My question is, it looks like the fenders have been bonded to the tub through welding and gluing. I can grind all this off but would you recommend pulling the engine first or just cutting as needed? I really don't want to pull the engine. If I do I will be forced to rebuild it because of my OCD.

The fenders are bolted to the tub, unless someone changed it at some point during its life.
