X2, I just wouldn't build a unibody big period. Unibody designs are very stiff but they aren't strong. Remove any component like the doors for more fun wheeling and the strength is greatly dimenished. As in if you wheel it hard enough, you may not get the doors back on or back to where they will close right again.

When you have a choice, buy American made.
