|geiman||After going aluminium, I'd never do anything else. I can easily lower and lift my Savvy skids by myself without much effort at all. It makes removing them for servicing things much less of a chore.|

this is all 1/4"
it's f'n heavy....especially when trying to wrestle it around off the jeep.
I got this stuff long before the current market players were available. To do it over again, I'd do UCF's aluminum skids.

I wanna be able to crush rocks... lol

|jrussblues||2-300 lbs of skid plates sounds like a lot just for underneath|

Custom skid plates
ok... here's one for the mob...
I'm gonna make some custom skid plates... I was thinking 1/4 inch steel... how much weight do you think I can get away with under the jeep?
I was guessing 200-300 pounds..
I was also thinking of making it into the tranny pan... kind of like that tummy tuck kit they sell.
I do a lot of hunting and rock crawling with it...
and its a DD... but not for long as my DD YJ is almost done with an engine rebuild... but I wanna be able to drive my TJ to the wheelin spots...
What say you all?
