YJ Tub on CJ7

SITUATION: Complete 89 YJ tub, windsheild frame, heating ducts, tailgate, and dash and harness. Seatbelts, everything basicly, cept seat/brackets/top/doors.

Replace my CJ tub with this one, re-use my fenders/hood/grill. I know that two body mounts need to be relocated. Also, I can not use my CJ windsheild frame with the newer ducts, do not line up correct ? Also, can not use my cj's dash without moifications for the ducts as well correct ? Also, I would have to get a wranger gas since filler neck is on the opposite side. Would one fit in the cj's spot ? Would my CJ's seat brackets mount up to exiting holes ? or would I have to create new ones ?

The big question is with the fuse block. Alot different then my 86 ?
Connector wise ? If it was, I would get the connectors from the wranglers harness and splice them into my current 4 bangers connectors if that needed to be done.

What you all think ? Its this or fiberglass tub, body replacment options. If I went this route, I would be saving bout $700 then ordering a tub, having it shipped, etc.

Ideas/comments/pitfalls etc.

Do a search on the forums. There has been a lot of discussion on the tub swap. I am planning one myself. Good luck. Also, go to google.com and search for YJ tub swap. There are about six or seven really good and detailed websites about the conversion.
