Advice on Replacing Rear Tub Mounts

All,

I've got some pretty rough rear tub mounts on my 80 CJ-7 (imagine that).

I'm trying to figure out how to tackle them - I know I'll probably have to replace the channels where they attach to the floor, but I can't seem to find those channels for sale anywhere - anyone have tips?

Also, in a perfect world, I'd like to be able to jack the tub up, cut out the channels, and weld in new ones with mounts without having to totally remove the tub. Has anyone done this?

Some pics below to give everyone a better idea:




Thanks in advance,

Marca

PS if anyone in the Austin area wants to help out with this little project, I can do 3D renders of your jeep with any color/mod you're thinking about...just sayin...

Those look like pictures from the Titanic.

If it looks that bad, and if you can do without the CJ for a while, it probably wouldn't be a bad idea to take the tub off and do all the proper repairs. No doubt all the mounts, body and chassis, could use some TLC.

Fabricating new channels, or fabricating repair patches on the channels isn't too difficult to do. Cut out the spot welds if necessary, remove the bad section, fabricate, and weld in the new piece. You will have to make new nut cages too.









There's more pics in my build thread if the pics help in any way.
