Backstory, guy is building a JL bodied WOD chassis. He didnt want a wrecked JL tub. He wanted a new tub. The Jeep dealer couldnt sell him just a tub. ( I dont have that back story.)

So he went around to the sales department and bought a brand new JL for just a tub. He is selling the rest of it.

Oh, the JL without the tub? Wouldn't it be cooler to work an LJ body on it? Which would be really difficult to do If I had to guess.
Having just recently driven a rental JL Sahara with the 3.6L and the 8-speed auto, (it drove really nice, but it felt a little weird cruising along at 65 MPH and 1850 RPM), I'd like to see a project like that. So would it be a JLLJ or a LJJL? JLUTJU? STFU?

It could be anything you want it to be, it would be yours. I would call it an LJ.

It be cool to stick a CJ7 body on that frame, or possibly a Scrambler although you'd need to move the rear axle back a couple inches.

Will a TJ body fit..........? :unsure:
The JK wheelbase is around 95 which is 2 inches more than a TJ. The JL wheelbase is an inch longer than the JK.

The extended wheelbase would look good on the TJ but one would want more tire for that wheelbase. Which is great, I believe the Jk and JL come with 33’s from the factory.
