Can I put an '83 CJ7 body/tub on a '78 CJ7 driveline?
I have an '83 Cj7 that was mechanically and electrically destroyed when it was flooded during a hurricane. The body/tub and interior are all still in great shape. I have opportunity to purchase a '78 CJ whose body is shot but whose "driveline" is in great shape. Could I simply take the body from my flooded '83 and put it on the '78 driveline and have a working vehicle?
I would think it should drop on. Check with the folks at JeepForum.com. That's where I go when I'm looking for Jeep answers. We've had three Cherokee's so far. --- Which VIN are you going to use? Does the VIN stay with the body or the frame? Which would make the CJ more valuable and/or cheaper to insure?
