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

Tubs took a little journey today from my buddy's house to the welding shop at work. Let the sparks fly!

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.

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.

Scored some rear TJ flares. I think I can make them work.

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.
