Fiberglass or Steel? Glass for me.

One of the big debates of Jeepdom. Well for me it's glass. See all that pretty white stuff? That's beautiful North East Ohio road salt. And we know what that does to steel, even galvanized sooner or later. It'd be different if I lived in Arizona or something but over here....wrap my ass in figerglass.

That's why I'm redoing mine in 1/8" and 1/4" plate steel. Bring it on, salt!

That salt defintally does suck, all are vehicles are covered with it, the trick is to park you jeep outside while it's snowing at night or in the morning and then when the sun comes out it melts the snow and wahses your jeep.

That and hope it gets cold enough to inhibit the chemical reaction. I just keep mine painted and waxed enough so it never gets started.
