My 79 cj7 pains...

Well, I thought it would be a easy weekend putting a body lift on the ol' beast, and after spinning the 3 bolt on the passanger side till they snapped, the 2 in the back corners wanna pull the outer body with them, the and the one on the passanger by the rear axle wants to round the head off. So I think I'll put that on hold until I can find a good YJ tub to swap. Gotta love this !!!!!!

Just curious, what's the advantage to changing over to a YJ tub vs CJ tub?

From what I've gatherd, the cj tub wasn't galvanized. the yj tubs were.

I had problems with the body bolts on my CJ7. With a little work, you can get them off. Are you planning on making it a YJ on a CJ frame?
