This may be a dumb question but I am running into money troubles tring ship a jeep body from arizona to detroit. Anyone know of any cost effective ways or anyone done it lately? I am on limited funds and really could use the advice. Thanks.

Re: shipping body

I'm not sure if there really is a CHEAP way out there to do that. Here's a suggestion though. Contact some truck drivers and see if maybe they can strap it on top of a load they are carrying in that direction. A body tub only weighs a couple hundred pounds, so it shouldn't really effect their load by that much.
You might be able to pay a couple hundred bucks and a couple cases of beer.
Also, with all the auto manufacturers in Detroit, there should be some empty auto transports coming back to Dteroit from AZ. I'm sure some driver would be happy to make a few $$ off of his already empty load.
Good luck.
