Default Body Tubs Fiber/kevlar/steel

here my issue i used to be all gun ho about the kevlar and fiberglass tubs but after i rolled my jeep rearend over front on a sand dune i feel those would be a bad choice cuz there significantly lighter then steel. I mostly mud and hill climb so in your guys opinion whats the best way to go, if you have fiberglass or kevlar hows it workin out for you? What would be the advantages and disadvantages of going with either of them. The only problem i see with steel is the likelihood to rust, and with fiberglass it seems like it would be alot of work drilling and runing hte ground block, and if by some chance i hit somethin and break the fiberglass it seems like it would be a difficult fix if it could be fixed at all. I may be wrong but thats why im posting to find out what you guys think about these types of tubs.
