hey i don't know how handy you are with a welder, but I went to my local steel supplier had them cut me two pieces of 1/2'' thick steel 20 or 22 inches long and 2 inches thick. (got the pieces for $5 each.) I then cut out my bolts from my skid plate marked the holes in the steel drilled them and tapped them for a half inch thread size, put the pieces of steel up in place on the frame and welded them right to it. It's solid! The only thing is you lose that 1/2" of ground clearance but I'll never have to worry about nutserts again.
