Its a great question isn't it?
One of the main reasons I am interested in keeping it a "CJ", besides the coolness factor is uber cheap insurance. Since This will be a toy for me as opposed to a daily driver (actually a second toy...Im hoping to have my build of a 71 MG midget done by the end of the summer) I just can't bring myself to pay $1,200ish a year in insurance. If its titled as a car that is 25 years or over, I can get classic car insurance. The driving is limited to under 5k a year, but its under $200 a year as well, so for me thats a fair tradeoff.
I think I've heard the frame is the most important, but if they go by VIN, wouldn't it be the tub? I wonder if I kept the CJ frame, swapped for a YJ tub and moved the VIN platefrom the CJ to the YJ if I'd get in trouble
