CJ fiber tub not fitting CJ frame
Ok, here's my situation. i'll try to keep it simple. I recently purchased a "project" jeep. it started out as 2 jeeps, supposedly a 1980 CJ7, and a 1982 CJ7. well, i've got a used fiberglass tub that was on the 1980, and i've got the frame that was from the 1982. i never looked at this when i bought it (never crossed my mind to), but the 3 side body mounts on the '82 frame, don't match the 3 side body mounts on the fiberglass tub from the '80. i looked to the internet for some dimensions, and i did find some, but nothing that tells me the distances between the body mounts (front-back wise). what i'm looking for, is for those dimensions of the CJ7 body mounts (primarily the 3 side ones on each side). I don't currently have the dimensions of my frame or the tub yet, but i will measure those, and post those, so that maybe someone could tell me what i have going on here. my first instinct (as a solution) would be to relocate the body mounts on the frame, to line up with the holes on the tub, but i just want to be sure that's the thing to do before i go modifying the frame. I have a YJ, and i also started to think that maybe it's a YJ tub, and not a CJ tub, but i measured my YJ body mounts, and they don't line up with at all with the tub, nor with the frame. One more thought (far fetched) is that i can't find any dimensions for a CJ6 frame. the main-eye bolt holes seem to measure about 49.25", so that would pretty much mean it's a CJ7 frame, but with the weird locations of the body mounts, could it be an older CJ6 frame? like i said, far fetched, but i'm at a complete loss. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. THANKS!!!
