    I have spent 2 days checking posts but haven't seen any people asking about them. I live in Vermont and the salt has finally done too much dmg. to keep patching it up. It has rotted my seat belt pillars in the front away. This is very bad. I baught a fiberglass tub for my 79 CJ5. That was easy. But does anyone make a tub for my 90 Jimmy? Man I hope so. It would be a lot lighter, Giving me way better power to wieght ratios, For wheeling and gas mileage around town,and wouldn't rust anymore!I beat the living crap outa my truck. And its alot of fun for me and my kids, But I cant get it inspected anymore and its coming do this month. Plz help. If not how heavy is a metal tub? As I will have to do the swap alone. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif Thanx a ton in advance. /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gifMY /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gifPLZ

    www.usbody.com click on the 73-87 chevy truck on the left side.

    if you can afford it, do it, it should be well worth it. they also make just about all the panels for a completely figerglass K5 /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    There is also the bummer body. It is a fiberglass body that is styled like a H1. It allows 35's with no lift.
