wrangler unlimited 12 valve

hey guys if anyone out there has any information about this it would be very much appreciated. myself and some friends would like to take a 2012 or 2013 wrangler unlimited body and place it on top of a 96 dodge 2500 12 valve frame and engine. we know this will take a lot of modifications and custom parts but we have the frame, motor, and are looking for the jeep body right now. could you all give me some specs about the jeep body and if possible any ideas or help.

Asking for "Specs about the jeep body" has got to be the most open ended question i've ever heard.


Anything can be done with enough fabrication, however I think that if your start is posting up on a jeep forum asking about "specs about the jeep body" you might be in over your head.

ok yes to refine my first question i would like measurements of the width of the body, how long it is, if we drop it onto a 12 valve will we have to cut the fire wall. any suggestions on how to make the engine fit and what we will have to change. i know we are planning on shortening the frame a good 35 to 40 inches because of how long it is.
