CJ7 tailgate vs. YJ swing gate.

Is the CJ7 tailgate the same size as a YJ swing gate? In other words, will it fit in the same opening without any modifications (other than the hinges, etc)?

Situation: I have a CJ7 with a YJ tub and YJ swing gate, but am thinking about taking it back original.

Thanks!

Yes, they are the same size. I'm sure if you search a bit you can find writeups about converting to a CJ tailgate, many have done it.

Yes it will fit. Certifiablejeep has a write up but can't find it now. Check the FAQ stickie under YJ tub swap.
