The old auto transmission skidplate (07-10) does the job for most moderate wheelin, but time takes it's toll. I had to straighten my skid with a press after the curb and F250 method failed. Aftermarket skids average around $300 to start, and I would rather put that money elsewhere. With little or no welding skills, and $30 in material you can reinforce the stock skid to handle bigger hits. The new '11 and up auto tranny skid seems to be more of a "bar" than a skid, so this may not be an option.
PS: my welds suck
3" X 4' 3/16" Plate
2 EA: 1.5" X 4' 3/16" Plate
I cut a 1" hole to access the outside bolts with a socket
The back skid material also has a 1" hole so the bolt is reccessed.
