my big problem is trying to find a LJ tub. All the junk yards around here are all but empty of TJ's or LJ's.

Same here! Seems that the few Jeep only recyclers (most are on-line) grab all the Wranglers at the insurance autions. Jason (ziptie) sourced his from a local (Olympic 4x4) Jeep recycling yard.

97 TJ, MCE fenders and flares, heavily used and reliable on 35's.

Tub mounts:
The LJ tub has two mounts under the cargo portion of the bed that do not hit the TJ frame locations (they are 4 ¾” off, C to C). WAC and I decided to make the new support from the frame cross member to the coil bucket. We used 3/16th plate. The new mounts were designed to not need the 1” BL pucks.










New body mounts in and ready for the LJ tub.

Mounting the LJ tub:
We prepped the LJ tub for welding to the TJ tub. We installed the tub then mounted it to the frame. Checked it all out and started welding it up.




At the point on the floor that the TJ & LJ tubs meet we added some supports.

The PSC corners make this idea work. Without having this option in the aftermarket I would not be doing this build. I do not have the skill to make this look right without them. I called around about my idea, looking for some LJ corners to buy modified. I was surprised with the responses I was getting from the after market. I just wanted some LJ corners with the wheel well and gas filler moved, I kept getting the “well one off stuff will be very expensive and difficult for us”. I got quotes as much as $1000! I also encountered people that would not listen to me, and just try (very hard) to sell me LJ corners. I had one guy telling me that there LJ corners would work without modification for my 15” WB stretch…. I gave up on getting corners made to my TJ-6 spec. I figured I would just get some blanks and cut the needed wheel well and gas filler holes out. This was last spring.


Well the time came to order my LJ corner blanks, so I called the new Poison Spyder Customs (I had never called them about the TJ-6 corners prier to this). I got Larry on the phone (just by chance) taking my order for LJ blanks. He instantly started asking me questions about the rig they were going on. I explained what the TJ-6 tub plan was, he then asked why I was getting blanks. I told him I planned on cutting it all out, he then offered to do it all for me. “It is not a big deal, LJ corner w/ TJ rear” he was exited about what I was building. His costumer service is on the next level. He also did not charge me some insane amount of money. It turns out that PSC is set up to do custom work, and they sell the custom stuff at very reasonable rate. I also only waited about two weeks before the parts arrived! Poison Syder Rocks!

This build is just badazz. Great work Jason, keep the pictures coming.

Are you sending it out for paint when you're done or doing it yourself? Same color as stock?
