? About trans skid plate

I just finished up my 4" lift and I'm not really fond of the drop down bracket for the skidplate. Undercover Fab has a 15% off sale till Sunday night, an I am considering getting their skidplate with their lopro mount an also purchasing a mml. Question is will this combination work till I have the time to get an install a sye?

Are you getting the high clearance tc skid? If you are going this route, may as well do a tummy tuck you will be much happier.

OK, please excuse my lack of knowledge, but what all is needed to do the tummy tuck? I searched tummy tuck for a while, and kept coming up with the high clearance skid and lopro mount. Then I read about people having a "highline" which got me even more confused. Is the tummy tuck a certain brand or just a finished product of all the components put together? Sorry for the lack of knowledge, I've had this Jeep for almost a month and it has become a very fun addiction!

There is a lot of junk that goes into a tummy tuck. I finally got mine done recently and with the ucf stuff. They are very nice skids. This is a really good link about TT's and it is good info.

So you want a Tummy Tuck... - JeepForum.com

Tummy tuck will give you more clearance and less hangup when going up on rocks or other obstacles. There are a lot involve with tt. These are the things that you will need to do a tt the right way.

SYE kit
Rear upper adjustable control arms
High clearance tc skid
CV drive shaft
4wd linkage bracket or cable shifter

Thank you very much for the info! Looks like I need to follow in the right order an go ahead with the sye, and get the cv drivelines before I install the high clearance skids.
