Is a tj frame somewhat close to the same as a yj frame???

Hello everyone,
I had a chance today to stare at a tj frame. I also have a chance to get a very clean southern tj frame for free. So my question is- Are the frames almost the same?? It looks like the tj frame lacks the very front shackle mount hole, and the very rear shackle mount hole, otherwise the look the same to me. Well besides the spring perches and shock mounts probably. Any info on this topic would be great! Thanks!

The body mounts are different as well. Way too much work to mod for a YJ IMO. Doable? Yes, but it depends on your skill level and not the most practical route to get a new frame. You'll get the same answers here as you are getting over on JF, in fact, you'll probably get more replies on your thread over there than this one.
A few FACTS:
Rectangle headlights ARE kinda cool.
YJ does NOT stand for "Yuppie Jeep".
Jeeps should only have TWO doors.
You should ALWAYS wave at other JEEP drivers.
