So here's some before and after pics...

Next mod is Metal Cloak fenders!

NC Bear I went with the same skid. It weighed a whopping 76 pounds when I weighed it. I will also warn you, it rusts quick, so after wheeling make sure you clean and spray bomb it....

Nice rig by the way. I will eventually go with MC or Genright flat fenders when I wear out these 33's.
Again, nice rig!

GSXRMAN14 Thanks a lot man... Going to have to check that out. What mount did you buy and where from? Also, I bought that rustoleum yesterday for my frame going to paint mine like you did. I'll let you know how it goes.

This bolts to the transmission, then those 4 bolts...bolt to skid holding everything stationary.



Attachment 976466

Stock skid holes



Attachment 976474

TF RECESSED HOLES.
04-11-2014 09:17 PM
GSXRMAN14 Yeah I don't think I even have one mounted. Could that explain why sometimes it feels like my transmission/transfer case shakes when shifting? Also, do you happen to have any pics of that mounted?

Sinister6 TerraFlex Belly-up Skid


Attachment 976210

Ready for removal!


Attachment 976226

Compared to the TF...this is tin foil!


Attachment 976234

I cleaned up the Rust and treated it with rust inhibitor and the undercoating completely around the rail.


Attachment 976242

New transmission mount.




Attachment 976250

When you're doing it solo got get creative to hold the bolts while tightening linkage.


Attachment 976258

Finished skid installation.


Attachment 976266

Rear pinion angle

overall it was not that difficult to install. Just a huge PITA!

I'm an idiot. Disregard this post. I saw later it was a 37x12.50R17 not a 16. Sorry!
