Simple question, can I put a TJ rear frame crossmember on a jeep YJ. It seems all I'd have to do is drill holes in the gas tank shroud so that it would mount up to it. (This is the rear frame crossmember that the bumper mounts to)

Why not. If you have the skills to fit it into place and bolt it or weld it, strengthen it where needed if necessary, go for it.

You do not want to bolt that the gas tank skid plate, No way would that be safe or strong enough mounting point. It needs to be welded to the frame itself.

Well yes, I would weld this piece onto the frame where the old rear frame crossmember was at
