river raider skid install help

i just recieved the full skids. Is there anyone out there who has installed these and would like to help a fellow jeeper this Saturday with an install. Kenny said it is easy but I have three holes in my dash where I tried to install the cobra 75 cb hook up. I did manage to install the diff covers and fenders. I will tell you the river raider products are top notch.

If I were out west, I'd help you out. I did the engine/trans skids in under an hour- they're mad easy. Just set out your tools, scout it out, and get to rocking- it's rather easy. I HIGHLY recommend safety glasses, as I do anytime you're under a vehicle, especially with mud, rust, etc. under there- it's pretty bonehead-proof. Just be gentle with the hex-head bolts, so as not to strip them out- Mark W.

Andy, let me check the family schedule. If I'm available, I'd be happy to give you a hand. I'd love to see these skids up close!
Maybe even enjoy a few or

Andy,

When are you thinking of installing these? I've installed skid plates, pretty basic. I'm sure between you, Rob, and myself, we can get the job done rather snappy.

Ty...


p.s. Did you get my message that the check was delivered to the "lady" on Saturday (07/25) (I sent a text msg)? Did she send you that great big notebook she wanted me to take along on our recent Big Bear trail run? (I told her I couldn't be responsible for the condition of the notebook if it spent 10 hours in a doorless & topless Jeep on dusty roads.)


p.s.s. Good to see the North San Diego County group growing over here . . . soon we'll have our own Suds-n-Gruds, and so forth, and what-not.

I am thinking about starting early Saturday. I am going to see the Padres on Sat night. I sure could use the help. We don't have a pool but we do have a slip n slide for the kids. I buy Jeep stuff before pools.

l have been here for a long time but as many people have said before as the action and people increase this site will have more posts.

Your house works. the only issue is the gas tank skid is huge. I don't know how I am going to bring it over there. I may need to have my wife drive a car over with some of the parts. what time should we start?

It does'nt look too hard. i spoke with kenny from River raider and he said he would be around Saturday if I had questions.
