Default cj-7 frames all the same??

I am doing a frame swap on my cj-7, got everthing switched over except the fiberglass body with no problems. I set the body on and some of the mounts are off by inches. I thought cj-7 frames were all the same so my ? is was this frame or my junk frame modified. I am just curious to find out pretty sure I can still make this frame work, worst comes to worst torch and welder:tonka:

What tub did you pull of that frame? Was it a CJ?

You would think you could see the old body mounts on the frame, if it was indeed modified..

Is this FG tub new?

and are we talking inches, or feet on the bolts not lining up?

I seem to recall newer CJ's having more mounts than the older 70's CJ's for some reason. Otherwise, you don't know what you have, or someone did cusom work.
