So we just bought a 1993, and plan on doing a lot of work to it, it's our play toy
However, first things first, it needs to be sound and healthy. Our biggest concern is the skid plate, I have had mixed tellings on this, some saying that the skid plate is the crossmember, and others saying the crossmember is under the skid plate, regardless, mine is pretty rough and needs replacing. I'm curious if anyone has done this themselves and has any tips, also, what about fashioning your own skid plate?
Does anyone have any reccomendation of where to buy one? We're looking for a good meld of quality/price, we dont want to go cheap, but we dont need the most rugged expensive thing out there, we plan on doing only some mild off-roading at the moment, and can always upgrade later and have this as a spare.

The skid plate in the photos is not representative of the frame, the frame is actually in pretty good shape, we're having it professionally gone over,cleaned up, and painted when we have the body work and new paint job done
. The rear half of the frame we've already had done and totally boxed and reinforced, woot woot.
Thanks, and sorry if this is wordy, I'm just excited to be making my first post here
