Well I got the tub off the Jeep yesterday, wasnt hard at all





I have however come to a crossroad in my rebuild. In all reality i think my Tub isnt worth repairing at this time. I think ill be buying a new, clean tub that wont require any rust repair. The way I figure it media blasting, the rust repair, body work, mine & my buddys time, help and materials Ill be over the cost of a clean bare tub.

Seriously, is this thing ever going offroad? Seems like the rusty tub wouldn't matter a whole lot after you bounce off a couple rocks and trees

You're taking longer than I am......

Seriously dude, put it together and wheel it. Why are you going to waste your money on a new tub when you havent even learned how to drive it yet. Once you know the vehicle and what it's capable of (by bouncing off everything in sight), then swap the tub and know your limits so you dont tear it up. The way you're going now, you might as well put some thornbirds on there because those stickies are going to melt off with the road miles this thing is going to see.

That frame looks like it has some rust on it as well, might as well replace that too.

Skooter, I was in the same boat as you with my tub being rusty. But Geo is right, wait till you ding the shat out of it then replace it. That is what I am doing, although i already have an eye for an LJ... ;)
