These bodies are actually built in Canada, and with canada's dollar so low it would be worth the trip to Kelowna B.C. they have a Canadian website www.aqualu.com they have specailized in FJ tubs for many years and got into jeeps about 2 years ago. a CJ7 tub runs $2875 Canadian, thats probably under $1800 US right now, I'm wanting to get one in the spring.
Hmmmmm Im a little confused. I thought that JP Off Road was out of Ventura, CA? <IMG SRC="smilies/confused.gif" border="0"> I guess www.jpoffroad.com is their address. Isn't Dave Knight the owner of the company?

That $2875 is US, my buddy paid $2600 for a CJ5 body.It is a nice unit!!2 guys can carry it easily.Really strong also although we did manage to put a couple of dents in it last weekend.A guy over in Montrose has a brand new CJ7 body for sale for $2000.He was going to build a 7 then decided to keep his 5.I think he owns Mcphearson Offroad.Blazin <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0">
Andy 911 is right. JPoffroad doesn't make those bodies at all - an outfit in BC does. That article in JP magazine that featured them was a crock...they do not make them. No credit was given to the guy that actually does, but he does excellent work, and very reasonable prices.
