Nope. The TJ and YJ both have a 93.4" wheelbase. The length from the door jam to the rear of the Jeep is the same on both vehicles at 81" and the width of the windshield is 55" on both vehicles.

I'm not sure what the actual frame length is, but the information leads me to believe that it is possible. There may be quite a bit of fabrication involved, but I don't know that.

I was curious about it myself and searched, but can't find an instance on the net where someone has tried it.

I found this. It's a YJ frame. I couldn't find anything like it for a TJ, but I bet there is something somewhere. From what I have found, the frames are nearly identicle, but I am not sure.

They YJ frame is skinnier at the front bumper. I think it is 2" difference between the two.

I do spend too much time in front of a computer...

I just stumbled on that schematic for the frame though. It looked like something that could be useful.
