Kevlar Body Kits

Well the CJ's body is pretty much shot, it is patched up for winter driving though. Next year I am planning to go with a full Kevlar body kit. Do any of you guys have experience with these? If so, what kit is considered the best, second best, etc. and why? I've heard people say that they shatter just like 'glass when hit, is this true?? I've considered going with 'glass and steel but I'd rather not have a 'glass body when it's -40*C outside (shatter)nor a steel body with the amount of salt on our roads. Thanks for any info that you guys have!

I have the exact same problem. Winters here eat up bodies fast. I have looked at both the kevlar and steel bodies and finally decided to go with a JP offroad aluminum tub. The price for the aluminum tub is the exact same as for a steel tub and you won't ever have to worry bout it rusting. kevlar is strong but if it gets hit hard enough I'm sure it will crack, aluminum will just dent which can be fixed. Thats just what I have decided, everyones needs are different. something to think bout though
