Questions: How much modification do these tubs require prior to bolting on? Any cutting and welding, or just drilling holes?
Question By: john on May 17 2013 12:00 AM
Really just drilling holes. You just need to drill your body mounting holes and toe board holes and you are off and running. Nothing a drill motor and dremel tool cant fix. Fit and finish. Over the transmission hole sometimes takes alittle filling. They do a great job reproducing these tubs and they are MOPAR licensed.

Questions: When these tubs are shipped are they unloaded at delivery location, or is the customer responsible for unloading. Do you know the approx. weight of the tub for a CJ-3A

The truck driver will unload to your business or residence no problem. The crate weighs approx 400 pounds.

Questions: I'm confused as to what tub I need. My current tubs data plate on the passenger side firewall says 2A. The other data plate shows a serial number of 12461 indicating it's an early 3A. The windshield is one piece (3A). I want to reuse my windshield frame, hood, and grill. Any suggestions? Thanks

Questions: Can you tell me what kind of primer is used on the new tubs?
Question By: Bill on Oct 5 2011 12:00 AM
Manufactured using a seven-step metal preparation process, including: A 5 bath dip to totally eliminate rust, dirt and grease; a phosphate and acid rinse step to ensure corrosion resistance and proper adhesion of the primer; new primer formula and application method that is designed for smooth and even finish.

Questions: The only serious corrosion in my CJ3A is where the wood inserts are. This makes sense because wood traps and holds moisture against the metal. Are the steel tubs available without the wood or can the wood be easily removed?
Question By: Jeff on Jun 12 2011 12:00 AM
We do have just braces available. I suppose you could remove the wood but I wouldnt recommend it. I would just seal the bottom of the new tub and you wont have any problems.
