Fiberglass, aluminum or steel skins?
I need to get cracking on making the bedsides for my Jeep and I am torn with a decision of what material to go with. This Jeep will see more street driving than trail unfortunately, until me the wife and kids can get moved back to Washington state, then it will see some tight trails and trees. I hate sheetmetal work, very low patients when it comes to working with sheetmetal. Fortunately it is all flat with a bend around the back. What are your thoughts, pro's and con's? what thickness material (steel or aluminum)?

I am planning on turning a yj tub into something similar and was going to use off the shelf corner gaurds for the bed corners and just flat sheet metal for the sides. Kinda late for you now since the bed is already made though.
pretty sure you can get them without any cutouts from genright.
