You can use everything, you will have to mod the windshield for the defrost ducts and switch the filler. As to the body mounts, no need to moe them. They will still line up with the re-enforcing channel at the bottom of the tub, ony you will have to get a nut and stuff in there - no real biggie though.

Do a google search with "YJ tub swap" there are many great write ups out there.
