while maybe "technically" illegal, I would just make sure you get at least a receipt/bill of sale from the yard showing the VIN # of the tub you're buying, then swap the VIN plate from your current to the replacement.
I mean, look at all the aftermarket replacement tubs available (Aluminum, steel and fiberglass)... I don't think those come with VIN/Title, do they?
