Anyone Build a Engine Skid Yet???

Was curious to see if anyone built an engine skid yet. After crawling around under the Jeep today, I saw that the trany has some harsh rock rash and seeing if anyone has built one vs. bought.

the problem with a skid plate that covers the tranny is that you have to put a big notch in it for the drive shaft.....i have a skid that covers my tranny back to the tailshaft of my tcase but it took alot of fork lift testing and taking back of to notch it where it needed to be to not break the drive shaft and still ge tthe coverage that trojan claims to offer
