YJ onto a TJ?
Can I put a 92 YJ body on a 97 TJ chassis? The frame on my 92 is beyond rusted to the point of danger. I also have a 97 TJ with partial rear body damage only and I want to combine the two vehicles.
Can the mounting plates be modified if they don't line up?

Any ideas?

If I don't do a swap, and sell the 97 TJ, what price should I ask?

Where could I get a low priced 92 frame?

My understanding is that you can put the YJ tub on the TJ frame... it just might take a little surgery.
