TJ Tub question

So I need to replace the tub on a TJ. Got a good running TJ off a friend after it was rear ended by a lifted truck. Frame has no damage but the tub is trashed. I think we found a donor but I'm not sure. Does this tub look right? Any advice on the swap?

Check "torque boxes" under the donor tub before u buy it if u Havnt already done so. They are where the body mounts screw into. And also take a body mount bolt and put it in to make sure they will all screw in and not just spin. In middle of a tub swap myself. Wished I had known that little piece of advice. U van buy replacement torque boxes but they're not cheap and have to have someone weld them in. Furthermore out of all the body shops around me they all said they weren't comfortable doin it....ugh.
