I updated the first post with a few pics of the gas tank skid and t-skid skid as well as the oil pan and trans. skids.

All are formed from 3/16'' steel plate and are available in bare steel and powdercoat finish.

How do you deal with the movement between the engine and the crossmember?
Is that logo thing on the engine plate some sort of a slide joint?

I noticed you have a long arm suspension. How's this gonna fit with the stock crossmember? Or is that the stock one you have?

Any chance of countersinking the bolts or rounding them?

Color choice in the powdercoat?

I would like to order a set straight away. Would you like me to rep them for you at Jeep Beach this year? Unless you are already going to be there. Its in mid May.

I will send you a pm. I also have your snorkel on my Jeep, great product.

so it looks like up front its bolted directly to the engine, and in the back its bolted to the crossmember

is that a good thing???

im thinking if i land hard on the very front, it might go all bad, and tweak the crossmember, or break the motor mounts

seems like skids should either be all mounted to the frame, or all to the drivetrain

thoughts??
