if you guys can find someone that knows how to do a frame repair (a reputable fab shop would be ideal) they have all the sections to make repairs

aheborn Hi All
I have a 2000 sport and I believe the frame is not repairable.
Tub is in good shape- can it be put on a CJ, YJ or other frame? I can't seem to find a frame anywhere.

justanotherjeeper K, thx folks, I have a 2000 with frame rot issues... The only frame I can find anywhere close is off an 03... Just wondering if its worth the effort to modify or just repair the one I have with the safe t cap pieces.... I have the tub off now. It is repairable...

Vinman Oops, double post

Sccafire I believe in 03 Jeep went with a new power steering gear box. They mount to the frame differently than the 97-02 frames. I would go with 97-02 being the same and 03-06 being the same. Just remember in 05 and 06 they made a LJ version. Make sure to not get one of those unless that is what you have.

2500hd The main diff is the transfer case skid bolt pattern in the frame. Can a 03-06 frame be used with a 97-02 tub? I would Suppose so but I'm sure there are things you would have to mix and match
03-02-2013 02:19 PM
Vinman I think the only difference in the frames are the t-case skid plate and steering box mounting positions.

justanotherjeeper Can anyone tell me what the differences are?
02-24-2013 08:32 PM
2500hd 03-06 are the same and pretty sure the 97-02 is the same. Think only two diff frames for the TJ.

TJ Frame. What years fit?

Hey folks,

I am new to this forum and this is my first post on here. Bought a 2000 Jeep TJ 4.0L 5 sp. Frame is rotted and needs work. I live on the east coast of Canada and this is common. I bought it knowing this and plan on repairing it. I pulled the tub off the frame and am faced with either a complete replacement or repairing it with the safe-t-cap pieces. This is the First jeep I've owned but have repaired the frames on a number of 1/2 tons. I am wondering what years are the frames interchangable? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thx in advance!
