90' YJ new tub

So Ive asked a few times about fixing the floor pans in my 1990 jeep. Well I'd been putting a plan together and was going to order the floor pans this week. Low and behold I checked craigslist... On craigslist I found an 88' yj with a great tub, Titled frame that has been sand blasted and painted, full suspension, axles, all the steering components, with good fenders, hood, and windshield frame with new glass. I guess the guy was going to begin to restore it.

So I'm gonna start the process of swapping the tube over to my jeep and the floor pan problem will be solved!!!!! This is so exciting it is near my family farm so my step father went and checked it out for me and i'm going down saturday to pick it up.

To those of you have have had your tubs completely off any tips I had thought of pulling mine off to repair the floor pans but figure id do the work on the frame. but since i will be pulling it off the frame do anyone have any tips?

Yes do the fuel tank upgrade by trimming the internal fill hose, get a set of poly replacement body /frame bushings, replace anything that looks like it may end up needing to be replaced in the future such as the fuel pump.

clean the complete underside of the tub & firewall and frame, then Por 15 it, after that do another layer of the Por 15 chassis coat.

This would also be a good time to add front shock hoops and frenching in a set of shock towers mounted on the outer part of the rear frame. And install some old man Emu long travel shocks..

Maybe install a set of smitty built front flat fenders and a set of rear flat fenders.

If the engine is solid, change the freeze plugs, and if it has the factory exhaust manifold change it with a header.

Wow now thats an answer. I was told by my step father that along with the picture there are also boxes of parts, its becoming clear that the only thing that this isn't coming with in an engine, transmission, t/c case, and drive shafts. Really I only bought it for the Tub. Once I get a good idea of everything I have ill be selling a lot of it to recoup the money.

I'll be removing the tub in the next few weeks and Por-15 the underside, the rest of the body inside and out will be bed liner tan.

Oh if you drop the tank and get another factory skidplate with this deal , weld yours and the second one together..much cheaper and stronger than most aftermarket ones when it is doubled.

Interesting about the skid plate. I going to pick it up Saturday morning. I'll be solving some of the small problems on the yj at home and working on the new tub on the weekends at the family farm.

We put some 2" foam on the ground as a pad and rolled the tub onto the fire wall to clean up and finish under neath (easier than working upside down!)



We made a wood frame to support our "new" tub while a bunch of stuff (dash, brake booster, heater assembly, etc) was installed. This allowed the frame to be stripped, POR-15'ed, brake lines, fuel lines, all suspension work, etc. to be done at the same time. So much easier to work on the frame with the body out of the way and it was nice to remove stuff from the old body and install right in the new one. We lifted the front of the tub and supported on saw horses and used an engine lift to hold up the rear and rolled the finished frame under.
