Hodag will be pulling his '78 out shortly - as soon a we pop the top off I will try to put some measurements on line. I am in the process of buildiing a new tub out of several donor rigs so the more pics of your rebuild the better.

I'll throw out some numbers even though they a probably not correct. Use at your own risk.

Outside width of rear tub: 64"/1625mm
Outside width of front tub: 65 1/2"1665mm
(Both of the above exclude door handles and rear side marker lights)
Width of rear door opening: 41"/1040mm
Height of rear door opening: 15 1/8"/385mm (less sure about this one)
Radius of rear quarter panel: ~6"/150mm

I'd be interested to hear if these are even close to what anyone else has come up with. I was going to use this on my tub rebuild, but I've been stalled out and haven't gotten much done.

What year tub did you get these from?
1973

I would think 68-74 would be the same.
75-78 probably the same except for the lip for the ambulance doors.

I don't have experience with real early or late tubs, so I won't even venture a guess.
