The tub mount looks good and I agree, it would be preferable to mount it after the tub is in place but you will have to patch some burned paint when you are finished welding.

What is next on the to do list?

Thanks Dave. I know, I hated to grind the new paint off but it's gotta be done.

I think Saturday will be an all day Jeep work day. I plan to get the tub mount tacked in place, I'll weld it later when the tub is off. Then I want to get the bushings and bolts secured so the tub is sitting where it needs to be. Then I want to start working on getting the engine, tranny and transfer where they need to be so I can make the mounts for all of that. I am thinking on dropping the transfer a couple of inches and moving the whole works forward a couple of inches from where it is now. The plan is to make the transfer crossmember and engine mounts so that I can attch a full length belly pan at some point. Lots of cutting, grinding and welding. I like it.

The YJ tub bolts are 1/2-13 & 7/16-14. My old CJ tub is not where I can measure the bolts on it.

Cool, thanks, there are no more captive body nuts on mine anymore, if the bolts didn't brake when I tried to take the body off, the channel they were in was so rusted I just cut it out, so I am going to bolt through the body floor, but wanted an idea of what diameter. Tanks for the quick responses, you help and thread have been helpful to my build!!!

... I guess I'm gonna have to fix that too…….

You've sure done allot of work on the tub. Looks good too. Will be great when you can post on here, maybe you could start a build thread. Thanks for the link.
