Re: YJ tub with light fire damage. - Worth it?
There may be some distortion of the sheetmetal, but no loss in strength.
Other concerns would include that you have lost all coatings from the sheetmetal where heat has damaged it, such as paint, seam sealer and undercoating. You will have to treat those areas as bare metal, strip and sandblast, prime and reseal those seams before painting.
Other than that, I wouldn't be concerned that it had minor fire damage. I'd take it over rust damage any day!
