Replacing Tub

After wheeling the Jeep over the last few years, including a backwards rollover, my body is about shot.. I picked up a tub in excellent condition with the idea of swapping it for my beat up one. Both are the same year, '99, and both are 4.0L & AX-15.. Is there any good writeups regarding the swap, specifically the firewall & dash area?

I started by removing the rear portion of my existing tub already, I think I could have it all swapped over in a weekend if I could find some guidance.

I doubt if there's a write up on that.

It's doable. Take your time. Get some friends (who know what they are doing or will listen to you!) to come help. And... save the beer until you are done!

I drive on the right side, what's wrong with you?

Be very careful with the wife mod. Uninstallation can be extremely expensive. Wife mods have been known to take the Jeep and all other mods during the uninstall process. Also, make sure you service your wife mod properly as often as humanly possible. Wife mods not properly serviced may malfunction or uninstall themselves at any time.
