Steel Tub

I have a question. I am doing a frame off restoration on my 77 CJ-5. I want to get an exact match with the tub that is on there now, but I can not find one without a tailgate. Mine does not have one and I want to keep it that way. Does anyone have any thoughts or ideas on what I can do?

I don't see why you don't want a tailgate. they are nice when needed, but I thought it was only fiberglass that didn't have tailgates. my vote it to just get or with a tailgate because that's how the original jeeps were

Yeah I've got chrome....but then again I've always made it home!

Actually some original CJ5s not sure about the 7s did not have tailgates mine included I think MD Juan makes a Tub without the tailgate but it might be the earlier years.
