I am thinking of fiberglass tub for mine as well. You can cut the tailgate section out and put your tailgate back on. They put reinforcement in the latch areas if you want to put your tail gate on.

I have those same tires in 33x12.5x15 and they work pretty good for me. And get me some pics of that dash if you can. I haven't seen that top thing with speakers before. I kinda like it. cnewton20@comcast.net is email if you can send me some.

The tailgate area is only reinforced on tubs that are built with the tailgate opening...they line the opening with a steel frame embedded in the body only on those...that's why they charge more money for them. You can't just hack the tub up and expect it to retain it's proper structural integrity. I *have* seen a couple of show Jeeps with it done, but you do it at your own risk and toss your tub warranty out the window.

i had a fiberglass tub on the CJ5 i had.. its good for a couple things... no rust, and it's lightweight. it depends on what happens on trails how i take it.. you could barely hit somehthing and it will just bend to the shape, steel will dent.. if it bends too much, it could crack, still will dent more, but if you slam on a rock, it could just burst into a white cloud of fiberglass and pretty much shatter, stell will just dent again =] ... dunno, depends on most peoples opinions / outtakes
