Awesome! I agree the YJ tub is the place to start for a trailer.

I have the feeling that your trailer is going to turn out really well, man...and those clean, square YJ wheelwells solve a MAJOR portion of the issues that I have with TJ tub-trailers...namely, the interior. Yours will be very easy to finish out. Very sexy.

If it's worth doing, then it's worth overdoing.

The YJ tubs make so much more sense ...

Thanks guys! I have A LOT of work ahead of me! These two tubs are quite rough, so I hope my bodywork skilz are up to the task! Damn it Hendricks, why can't you be closer!

From everything I've seen, yours turned out spectacularly well; the ONLY thing I didn't like were those interior wheelwells and that's just the nature of the beast with TJ sheetmetal. The YJ tub addresses that issue; like you said...it makes sense.

If it's worth doing, then it's worth overdoing.

Keep at it, I found a local guy here in Tn that has YJ tubs for trailers for 200.00. I might just have to do this.
