So......... You need 35's and an LS1 why don't you go get them.


35's are small and a LS7 is better.

MR.CLIFFORD I don't think they look exactly like the stocker TJ brackets but they do have enough brackets available to weld it in place. If you are looking for a complete kit you should check out RE or MORE. I want to say they are relatively similar in cost.

Dirk can get you either if you so desire.

distortedtj AS STATED above the pic's dont show the damage that good. And the "belly pan" trans/t-case skid is smashed upward Cant tell in the pic's.

New armour is in the works. I dont jimmy-rig my junk. It'll be done right the first time.
06-13-2008 11:49 AM
MOz Nothing to get excited about or lose sleep over.

However, if you intend to abuse your diff on a regular basis, I woud suggest an upgrade. The belly pan is barely scratched.
06-12-2008 08:24 AM
debruins if you make your on diff guards could u post up soem pics, b/c i ahve the time this summer to do that, but i dont know quite how to do it
06-12-2008 07:36 AM
richp Pick the spots it took the hits on and weld on or bolt on some extra beef.
06-12-2008 03:09 AM
mr4x4 your trans skid is pretty straight mine is really jacked up compaired to yours and its not as bad as some that Ive seen
before I got my gas tank skid I had a bigger dent then that in it
as for the diff your just shaving it down for more clearance
06-11-2008 06:42 PM
distortedtj but, but, but, ....thats what your here for!

my next jeep investment....

After a recent wheeling trip down to Disney Ok, I've relized I NEED MORE STEEL! Bent up the trans/t-case skid. Took chunks out of the front and rear diff's, and smacked the gastank skid a couple times.

These pic's suck and dont show the damage very good .. the tank skid has a new upward dimple. and the trans/t-case skid is all jacked up.






I'm lucky I got a steering box skid on there before i left...it took two good hits.
