Replace tub or Body armor

My son and I are new to this jeep thing. We are really enjoying going to the trails. We just purchased a 2nd YJ. The body is VERY rough. All different size of plate metal has been welded on to it.
My question is our we better to replace the tub or add body armor to cover it all up? The current tub is in fair shape.

Looks like you and your son have a project. If it were me, I'd look for a new tub. That one looks like the PO was attempting to fix rust spots with bad measurements and scrap. I think in the long run you'll be better off going new and saving more time and money.

Heres a few tubs I found that I think are near by you. They do have some rust but not terrible.

This one is in rough shape but half the price and it would be easy to fix up. http://chicago.craigslist.org/sox/pts/4140507919.html

you can also get entire replacement panels from Rock Auto for a decent price... if you have access to a MIG welder
