"The front main body mounts where 2" high and at an angle. The front 6 body mounts are all flat and on the same plain if you have not looked. The weldes are poor. Some of the panales where cut with shears and not file down. Part that should have been lazer or water jet cut so they did not look like badly hame made parts. I under stand body work is need but the body mounts should have been welded in a jig."
Pros: Better then the rusted one it replaced
Cons: I hated every hour that I had to fix there poorly made tub when others make better.

"The body was overall in decent shape. It deffinatately needs alot of prep work before painting. The windshield hinge holes are incorrectly stamped and need to be redrilled. No fuel tank spout hole. No throttle cable hole. No front support rod mounts. No rear bench seat mounting holes. Alot of this is due to customizing you're own ride. Body is spot welded together on all seams, not seam welded so seam filler is needed at all joints. All in all the craftsman ship is average."
Pros: No rust, Looks like a CJ tub, well packaged upon arrival
Cons: No bench seat mounting, no speedo cable hole, no front support mounts, hinge mounting holes incorrect.
