QUESTION: Will a CJ-7 frame work for a wrangler YJ? The YJ frame is rusted out at the shackle mounts and I would like a clean frame rather than repair the one I have I have come across several CJ-7 frames but don’t know if they will work with minor mods. Mike C.
ANSWER: While technically possible to make this work it’s unpractical. The YJ frame is very different from a CJ. The rear of the YJ frame is wider and almost all the mounts are in different locations. The swap would require a large amount of fabrication. The YJ frame is much stronger than the CJ-7. Our advice, find a YJ one.
