if you are drop msrp on a crappy tub made of sh*t metal that doesnt fit, maybe look into jewels SS stuff. at least it wont rust out as fast. once again, personally i would hunt all CONUS for a builder and get it shipped. only a rust belter would consider juan a option. i always get mistaken that i have found the holy grail just to find out it is only a 10 year old rusted out juan.

I am almost certain to say that Brian Haner (metalshaper) would be more than happy to assemble a tub for anyone, and it would be just as correct as any tub that left ACM in the 40's.....

Current Juan tubs last 6 years or so are made from
Galvanize steel rust issues are at a end. Drink
A glass of milk before welding on it and it is all good

Takes some work and can make period correct.
Have your old cowl welded on some vendors do that.

Long store short a jeep after 46 and on will never be
Worth what a good restores MB is.

Well, I was able to locate a decent used original tub pretty close to the house. It will need some work, but appears to be manageable. I also bought two more CJ2As from the guy that are complete but projects at this point...
