Whomever has replaced Rommel obviously doesn't have an interest with this forum and I hope I'm wrong, however I doubt we see any substantial product improvements.

I had most of the same issues as you did Davidover, My original was too far gone to rework, I am happy with my tub, once fitted it looks good, If they revised just a few things on them it would be a great buy.

Just purchased a tub at the end of the year ... still many of the same issues!  Fuel tank cutouts, not even close!  Wonder how bad the pedal holes will be.  Tooling marks on the floor pretty nasty, looks like they'd been in there with an excavator.  Most of the spotwelds had high spots on side of the body so grind and fill. Typical stuff mentioned in this forum.  Body dtd 2017, purchased from Quadratec. No top bow bag of goodies included and tub footman loop holes still messed up.

Quite right. The earlier tubs like mine did not have the "Jeep" script.

I didn't do much spot weld grind and fill on the MD Juan tub I bought at the end of 2015. My operating theory was that I doubt Willys spent much time on smoothing and filling body imperfections...it was to be used as an agricultural truck. Just my personal theory...

The fuel tank connection hole problem on the tub apparently still exists...some things never change.

My friend bought a GPW body spring of 2017 and it doesn't have side holes for the body handles but has holes for the back corner handles?  The fuel tank hole on the bottom wasn't really lined up either.  The worst part was the cowl, we put an aftermarket outer windshield "USA made" on the body and there is a big gap in the middle of the cowl to windshield.  Angry

On the grind and fill, I normaly would agree with the original body manufactured concept, but the spotwelds had actual metal spikes from the welder contact points ...no way after dropping that much coin on a new body I could let that slide ...not doing anything else on rest of the body except the floorboard work ...Willys would never have let that body leave the factory.
