When you say "tubbing" are you refering to widening out the wheelwells to fit wider meats under your rig? If so, you might run into problems as the inner fenders run clear up to the frame.

Yes thats what im refering to.. Not for bigger tires though. Just so i can have more room for the tires i have now, need more room for the wheel travel. Im just ripping the sh*t out of my fenders and tires ...

Well, I have been working on the rear sheetmetal on my zuk for about 2 months now, replacing the inner fenders and the sheetmetal from the door back. There is plenty of room for what you are describing on the drivers side, but on the passenger side you may run into problems with the fuel nozzle as it runs just behind the inner fender through the floor. BTW, I have upgraded to 14 gauge sheetmetal for corrosion resistance.

I just started this week on the same thing you want to do, becuase of my rust problem. putting new floor,tubs,rocker panels you name it it probably needs to be replaced. The one thing to think about is what your gonna use for fender flares, if you want your tubs longer and higher you'll have to cut out the body panel and the stock ones won't work. I hope to have it all tacked in by sunday. if you need any ideas i'm in coquitlam

Front YJ flares work well for the rear of a zuk. You have to cut them to match, but they look good. Calmini also sells some flares that bolt right on to the old mounting hardware if it is still on the truck. They also sell flares that bolt to the side similar to bushwacker.

As for pics Jayzuk, I do not have a scanner.

Hey we tubbed a suzuki not long ago, it wasnt on purpose though, the wheelwells were rusted out, so new tubs were formed from an old Admiral fridge and welded in. We measured room to stuff 38's, lol.
