Ther was a HUGE write up by a guy named Jeepskate on here- pretty all inclusive for tub swaps.
I cut the cowl off the old tub and welded it in to the new one- the cut diagrams I was seeing didn't appear to leave enough metal. I will try to dig up some pics, or they're all on a deeply buried build thread on here called "The Rustbucket Project".
Yopu're gonna love it when you're done.

I think I need a set of those little red doodads in the middle of your pic. Sway bar bushings? My drivers side one has disintegrated.
Basically, all the tub swap threads deal with: defroster duct/cowl issues, fuel tank filler hole, body mounts at rear and directly behind seats.
And don't forget to snag all the fuel venting stuff from the drivers side rear fenderwell before you take the carcass to the junkyard. Wish someone would have reminded me of that.

No those are shackle bushings Im going to change out. I did the sway bar bushings already. Yea I will keep everything I can think of off the old tub. Did you cut off the tailgate latches off your old tub too? Don't look like it'll be too bad a job.

I did not use the CJ tailgate- the lower part of the tailgate was shot, so I went ahead and did the YJ one- rust free.
I think I took everything off- I'm real good at that. Just putting it all back together right seems to be a bit more trouble.

I see what your saying now about the defroster vent. I may just cut that piece out like your saying and weld it in. Today I got the column, pedal assembly and dash out. Wasn't too bad. Next is the heater assembly.





Does anyone know if the rod stays with the master cylinder or is it just rusted and jammed in there? thx

1. I think you wanna just leave the rod in that MC- mine worked, so it stayed just like that.
2. That heater unit is not heavy, just a bit awkard to remove- you'll probably think it's welded on, but the sealer on everything is incredible.
3. How does your dash pad look? I'm still waiting for the guys at Monstaliner to come out with pints in color, so I can try the spice on my JBWeld patched one.
** And I will put in a vote for Monstaliner for the inside the tub finish. Just sayin.

That rod is held into the back of the MC with a rubber piece that is on the rod. Maybe a little WD-40 to lube it, and a little leverage or a hard tug may remove it... Why remove it? New ones come with them.. If you are going to need to extend it, then I would remove it to remove the rubber piece, or it would get melted if you weld..

Im getting a new master cylinder anyway since Im switching over to power brakes.

Dash is ok..I have to see if the back part is fixable.




Got the rest of parts stripped from the tub today and pulled it off.

Cleaned up the frame a bit today which actually is in pretty decent shape with no rot aside from one body mount which I won't need anyway. Does anyone know who makes a preformed brake hardline kit? Same with the fuel lines, is there a kit? thx

I got my prebent brake lines thru 4wd Hardware. They have prebent fuel lines too, but it is cheaper to buy a bulk roll of stainless thru them and build your own. I used 3/8 for feed and 5/16 for return, with a 1/4 for the vapor line. I just got a line bender from Auto Zone, and it worked great. The prebent was like $98 for each line, where the bulk was $45 for a 20-25' roll. I have a few feet of each left over, so one roll of each should work fine.

I went hardcore low budget- brakelines looked good, no wet spots- so I just kept them.
Cutlass is correct- save cash, bend it yourself. My cheapa$$ went with low cost metal anywhere there could be a potential pinch point, Rubber EFI rated stuff the rest of the way. His way is better.

I gotcha, I guess I'll go for the stainless roll then,put the flares on the ends myself and I'll hold onto the old ones to make the same lenghs and bends. I figure what better time to do the lines than with the body off.

Today I dropped and drained the tank, removed all the brake lines and fuel lines.

I took advantage of the Cyber Monday sale today at 4wd Hardware and ordered up the brake line kit, new rear axle bearing kits for the 1 piece axles going in and a few other little things.

Got this today to repair my rollbar on driver's side

Tonight I cut out a rot hole in the rear crossmember and welded in a new piece.
