73 cj5 build

Hi everyone. I have a '73 Cj5 (304. t15, d44,d30 front). I stumbled upon a "77 cj7 project that the PO abandoned because of rot in the frame and tub. everything else (hardtop, doors, windshield, etc are pretty good. My question is it worth my time to stretch the frame of my 5 to fit a donor 7 tub. The cj7 has a rebuilt 360 & auto that I would like to use as my 304 is getting pretty weak. Any advice to as to help out a newb would be appreciated. Thanks

Buy it for the parts (if cheap enough), find a donor tub and frame from a 7. You are planning to pull all your other good parts from your current 73 cj5?
