Replacement Body Manufacturers

Looking at Jeep replacement bodies for a CJ8 and post 72 CJ6. I know about the MD Juan, made in the Philippines bodies, and have heard that these are the bodies that Willys is selling. I also know about the Omix Ada body parts but have no idea where they are from or there quality. Does any one have any first hand experience with the Omix, and are their any other manufacturers out there. It doesn't appear that there is an after market tub for the late model CJ6 or replacement panel manufacturers? Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

Classic enterprises reproduces a bunch of panels. Aqualu does an aluminum tub.

Thanks to all for the input. As I currently understand it MD Juan builds the Omix body but it is better quality. That information came from a Omix dealer.

The '72-75 CJ6 tub really isn't that different than the '71 and older. Minor firewall differences as well as the forward most body mount being outboard of the frame vs on top of the frame rail.
