Ya'll with Belly up skids ???

Everyone with a belly up skid......

What brand do you have?
What is your likes/dislikes about it?

I'll be doing a belly up and I'm weighing out the options.

Tell me about your Belly Up Skid.

They're just too bashful and vain to admit they've had a tummy tuck.

So far the best tummy tuck i've seen is one that is just a flat plate

It required 3" bl however it was darn sweet. I believe nico is doing similar design that drops down just an inch bellow the mounting points (he has 2" bl)...

You mean like the one designed for coyote's rig? I wouldn't know how to do that.

Just looking for ppl who run them. and what the like/dislike about the one they have.

I've seen the different belly-up plates. And made them.

No i gues its not like the CAT. Its simply a flat rectangular plate that goes underneath like the stock one does however it does not drop down at all ,its just a flat plate (3" bl)... a plate for a 2" bl is the same way however its bent a bit

another idea is to put a square tube crossmember straight accross between the frame rails and have the transmission hard mounted to the crossmember. The bushings, instead of being under the transmission, would be at the ends of the crossmember where it joins the frame rails. That would allow you to keep the transmission and tcase lower than if you had a bushing directly under the transmission and let you use a completely flat skid made out of aluminum. You wouldn't need a 2 or 3 inch body lift. I really like Coyotes setup too, thats really cool. And the yellow looks great

I'd like to try this idea sometime.

Triple88a I know all about the self made skid's. I've made many for chevy's, ford's, and a couple for jeeps.

Looking more at prefab'd belly up skids. Depending on what brand I go with It may be free.

if your going aftermarket with your TC it makes a true flat skid tough. One of the reasons I went with Terra.

Nth Degree products sold by AEV are pretty good. I have alot of friends who have the Nth tummy tuck. Not cheap though but looks pretty close to flat

kindof expensive though and they are made for 03-06 TJs.
