Swap 97-98 TJ tub on my 04 RUBI
I rolled my 04' Rubicon and am looking to swap an older 97-98 TJ tub onto my 04' Rubicon frame. Does anybody know if it will fit or do I have to use an 03-06 tub? I would be ok with drilling a couple new holes to make it fit. Any help would be appreciated.

The 98 has shorter grill snubbers that sit on a bent piece of flat sheet metal that wraps over the frame. You will need the snubbers from a 98 or remove the little platform from the frame.
