Re: CJ7 body parts and tub, which brand?
I just completed swapping a YJ tub on to my CJ and I'm glad that I went that route. First, the two tubs were 99% identical. Once installed the tube lookds 100% stock. The modifications needed are minimal, and more importantly in my case, easy. All of the information you need is on this site, so do the search.
I found my tub on carpart.com. search for a "rear clip". I paid $900 for a 95 YJ tub, and the guy threw in everthing that was on it. The other parts alone were worth over $900 by themselves. Unless you have your heart set on fiberglass, I would recommend the YJ tub swap. If you are interested in fiberglass, 4WD Hardware sells an instructional video tape. There is a lot of drilling and fitting with a fiberglass tub that is already done on a YJ tub. Anyway, I found the tape helpfull in either case. Good luck.
