Re: Got my New Tub!!!
The tub seems very sturdy. Granted, I have nothing to compare it to, but it's heavy and has some wood boards for support.
The tubs for 76-up CJ5's were really nice. Some were painted, and some had the holes already drilled in them for mounting.
All of the early model tubs were white and have an open rear area. The later model ones had a different setup with the wheel wells and the rear area. I don't know what the stock later model tubs look like. I wish I had a digital camera because I would have snapped some pics of the tubs and other goodies there.
The place is in Zebulon, GA, which is about an hour south of Atlanta. It doesn't look like much as you drive down the driveway, but they have a bunch of parts and semi trailers full of parts.
Apparently the owner, Don, bought up all of the inventory of a shop in FL that made the tubs and dashes and went bankrupt.
The newer tubs were about a quarter inch thick if not slightly more in the floor.
I'll get some pics shortly and try to take them as the tub swap goes along.
