Aqualu aluminum Jeep Bodies

Ok, I was surffing the web and found a company in Germany that sells aluminum Jeep CJ5 & Jeep CJ7 bodies. I don't know how to convert Euro dollars to US dollars, but the price for the aluminum Jeep bodies are nearly $4000 Euro dollars. Shipping is extra of course. Here is the link power-trax.de

Re: Aqualu aluminum Jeep Bodies

Aqualu bodies are made in British Columbia - www.aqualu.com. They're imported by JP Offroad in Spokane - jpoffroad.com. I think they're also imported by Willys-Overland in Toledo; ask Jay at [email protected]

I investigated them before I got the SS body. They looked well-made but JP, the only importer at the time, seemed to be a total bunch of Bozo's; it took weeks to get info from them and most of the time they didn't answer the phone. Also, at the time Aqualu made only tubs, not windshield frame or anything forward of the firewall.
