Red face Omix Ada Steel Bodies

Has anyone had unbeliveable difficulty replacing their steel bodies with one from Omix-Ada?

Nothing lines up, body mounts, had to cut out welds, square up the tub better, drill addional holes in fire wall, modify connection to frame etc. A complete nightmare.

I have not run into this problem with Omix-ada products . Are you sure you have the right tub ? I Have replaced tubs for customers with this brand before and not had problems / Although I have had to cut firewall holes before .

I actually got the body replacement pieces through Willy's Overland, and have researched it and was told on several occassions that allbodies manufactured for the US come from the Phillipines and are the product of Omix Ada. I'd put pics on to show but no clue as to how to attach pics from my hard drive.
