TJ frame differences?

Alright so the frame on my father's '00 TJ is rusted out, and I've been searching around for a new frame to replace it with. I've been seeing one listed for a while that is supposedly perfect, and with only 40K miles. It is from an '04.

4wd only lists their replacement frame for a '97-'02. My question is are there any differences between the later model year TJ frames and an '00 TJ frame? I've been searching but haven't found much.

Specifically I know the steering biz on the '03+ is a different bolt pattern (Mercedes box vs Saginaw). Other than that not sure, but that's a start

Re: TJ frame differences?

Skid plate mounting bolts are diff and all I think 00 bolts are metric and 03+ is metric or maybe it's oposite lol.
