Engine,transmission, exhaust skid plate selection

I'm need to finish off my skid plate system. I currently have River Raider gas tank and transfer case skid plates but I'm wondering if there are other "compatible" engine/trans skid plates.

I'm not opposed to using RROR to finish my skid system; but, I am concerned with potential vibrations because the engine skid attaches directly to the engine and not the frame/motor mounts.

I am capable of making some mods to make a different brand work with my existing skids.

I really am concerned with protecting my Ripp crossover pipe that comes with their headers.

I'm running the TNT full aluminum system and a PSC evap can skid. I'm not sure if the rest of the TNT stuff is compatible with what you're already running but I am happy with it.

Edit: Looking at that picture though the fuel tank skid should be compatible with TNT's trans and engine skids.

Smart Ass!!

I haven't wheeled since I installed the headers. This past year was not a good year for wheeling with the move to the west side of Colorado Springs.

JCR has an engine skid that mounts to frame at the motor mounts much like Jeep Medic did in its TJ/LJ days!. Very Solid.
