Auto Trans Skid Plate on Lifted Rubicon
So I lifted my 05 Rubicon with a RE Express 3.5" kit. While it was not in the instructions I have read on here that for the automatics, this skid plate will interfere with the front driveshaft when the front axle drops to full drop. I have read you can remove it or use a plasma cutter to notch the plate to provide driveshaft clearance. I have included a picture of the skid. If you cut the plate, where would you cut at. To me it appears you would have to cut that left mounting arm off? Then that corner would be unsupported? Anyone have any good fixes for this. Leaving the plate off leave the trans oil pan totally exposed which does not look like a good idea.
