Do you think the tub would hold up to general utility use? The extended 6'6"x 59" would fit a 4x8 piece of plywood ok with it sticking out a little, which really is the same with most pickup beds nowadays.
PS. I have a big box of Morryde gear in my garage I picked up yesterday. The installing begins tomorrow.
PPS. I was thinking Dinoot would be a good company to build things like your modular top and tailgate door.
The Dinoot tubs are very sturdy. I use my prototypes for hauling all kinds of things around. I don't have the j-series prototype around anymore, but it served very well for general hauling. I do still use the m-series prototype all the time for hauling things - I often use it as a parts-getter when I'm picking up craigslist finds for other projects, and I use it for hauling lawn and yard supplies around.
I carry plywood all the time on top of my m-series. I also carry plywood inside my jeep-tub trailer (the metal trailer that was the inspiration for the j-series fiberglass design), and it hangs off the back a little but works fine. This is the metal tub trailer, it served very well when i was moving my son to his new apartment in D.C., but a fiberglass Dinoot would handle the job just as well. Most of the stuff was out of the trailer by the time Robert took this photo but I still have to manhandle the couch out of it.
And here's my m-series picking up fertilizer and topsoil at Lowes, had to use the trailer because the truck bed was full....
Not sure Scott @ Dinoot wants to get into Jeep accessories but I am in a conversation with someone who's interested in bringing some of my fiberglass Jeep designs to market, so maybe some of them will become available.
Looking forward to your MORryde installs.
PS: You know I designed the Dinoot tub kits, right?
