What tubs can fit an 84" wheelbase?

I have a '74 CJ5 with the i6 so it's got an 84" wheelbase. Are there any other tubs that will fit this body other than the cj5? thanks,
adam.

I think that the CJ2A tub would fit. Also, (don't slam me too hard) the Suzuki Samari tub will also fit.

Why are you asking?

Well, I'm about to replace the tub on my '74 CJ5. It has the 232 i6 so I believe that the wheel base is actually three inches longer (Jeep owners Bible). I was hoping that I could possible cram a CJ7 onto the frame, but I guess not.

I don't think that is possible .. the YJ and CJ7 have the same wheelbase at 94" .. I don't think that the 10" difference could be "sucked up" somewhere.

See about doin' an aluminum body CJ-2a conversion .. that would be way too cool
