Under Cover Fabworks, LLC - Carbon Steel Engine Skids

They have a little photo on the site there ^^^

But there are brackets that bolt to the frame (under the motor mount area) and two angle bars that bolt to the brackets and extend down to the front of the skid. For the rear mount...just drill a few holes and bolt it to the trans skid. Easy install.

I added a smittybilt rear bumper, my first upgrade, will go back and get the spare tire attachment. Now I have to get the skid plate for the gas tank, I hate looking at that rusty thing.

Nice looking bumper. Go out and get yourself a can of spray paint that'll take care of looking at that rust

I'm trying to find a rattle I can hear on the passenger side either in the dash or door. I looked in the dash area tonight and I'll look at the door tomorrow. Hope I can find it its annoying the heck out of me
