I don't have a suspension lift yet ($$ is tight but a Currie lift is in my future). I run 33s, and my skid plate seems to hang up everywhere. After the suspension lift, I will still need at least a 1 BL to clear 35s. What do you guys think the best combination for my lifts and skid plate clearance?
I've installed several Atlas T-cases in TJ's. The most body lift I use is 1.25" and the lowest the flat skid hangs below the frame is 3/4" or 3/8" aluminum plate spaced down from the frame with a strip of 3/8" aluminum plate.
Part of it is getting the flat clocked case from AA and then some creative dimpling of the tub.
I just finished this one and while it doesn't have an Atlas, you can see the skid which is the same as I do it on custom builds and the Atlas would fit just fine.
This one is similar and has a flat skid with a bubble for the lower corner of the Atlas.
The rest of that rig-
On this one, I had to do the 3/8" spacer for the flat skid.
