Anyone put a YJ bumper on a CJ frame?

i wanna put the ARB bumper on my YJ onto my 74 CJ frame.

I know I added a YJ stock front tow bumper to my 85 CJ with out any issues.. assuming the holes are in the correct place I don't see an issue.

My stock setup for bumpers is, well, gone due to frame rot and repair. So my bumper is welded on... But I can give a center-to-center measurement of my frame rail on the front if that will help. I can tell you right now it's 2" x 4" x 1/8" rectangular tubing. That's what the YJ frames are made of.

used to be... that YJ and CJ front bumpers had holes to fit either one the YJ being wider. The rear im pretty sure is exactly the same.
