I cut the defrost section of my CJ tub and welded it in the YJ tub. I took the whole section, side to side. If you just take the center section then the holes for the windshield hold down knobs will be slightly off on the YJ tub (If you use a CJ windshield).
If you want to use your CJ tailgate, swipe the supports for the cables from your old tub. You will have to drill for the CJ hinges as well.
The mount just in front of the rear tires does not match the YJ mount point. I chose to ignore. That mount will land on a channel of the YJ tub. I plan to cut a 1/2" piece of steel to size, drill/tap and slide it in the channel to bolt that mount. The mount holes on the rear crossmember need to move out about 3/4".
Your CJ battery tray will not match the mounting holes on the firewall. I marked, and drilled and welded in nut in correct location.
If using CJ rear fender flares, weld up the YJ holes, mark and drill holes for CJ flares.
I have read the rear drip edge of the tub may interfere with the frame but have not set my tub on the frame yet to know.
Will need to drill holes for floor dimmer switch.
You already know about the fuel filler.
