Buying a fiberglass body ????

I will be replacing my Yj tub with a fiberglass replacement tub this winter. I have found 2 suppliers. 4WD hardware’s deluxe model and Kentrol’s deluxe model. There both with out a tailgate opening however Kentrol's retails for considerably more money. Is there a difference between the two? Quality or ease of install?

I'm not really familiar with either of these but do have a question to ask.

Have you considered an aluminum tub? From what I can see they may be better than a glass one. Thoughts?

Hi Jim, it turns a friend of a friend ect ect had a 91 yj steel tub in his barn $300. Mint condition it has been sitting for years. The only thing I noticed was my old 89 tub has a different cut out for the slave cyliinder. I will figure that out when I get to it. I might cut a template from my firewall and patch it in.
