Aqualu 5030 Aluminum Body Tub for 76-86 CJ-7

Catalog #: 22500.200.T
Aqualu Part #: 5030
If you're thinking of replacing a tired CJ body tub with a fiberglass or steel unit, why not also consider the benefits of aluminum? These amazing aluminum bodies are 30% stronger than steel and the example CJ-7 tub weighs only 275 pounds. These handmade tubs are manufactured with 5052 marine grade and 6061 aircraft aluminum with a nominal thickness of 5/32ö. All panels are continuously MIG welded with pure argon gas. Fabrication of each body tub is done by hand to ensure accuracy, detail and quality. The aluminum body tubs reflect all of the original factory lines and will work with your factory fenders, hood, doors, tailgate, hardtop, soft top and windshield frame. The interior floor and firewall areas are stronger than original and look like something you'd see in a NASCAR racer.

You can retain your original steel dash panel or use an optional aluminum panel.

Did you know that vintage Series Land Rovers had aluminum body panels that could survive the charge of an full-grown rhino? These tubs are just as durable and were developed for serious off-road use and an occasional rhino assault.
