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!

7lbs! Between the 2 of them! All beef!
F'n Engineers! 14" on rear side to put bolt in & remove but no the gotta put it in front to back. Ugh! every engineer should have to work on their patent just once!

|Sinister6||Just went with stock rubber from NAPA, $39. Rubber less vibes than poly. Anytime!|

|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.
Stock skid holes
TF RECESSED HOLES.

|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?|

|GSXRMAN14||Where exactly is the transmission mount located?|
|04-11-2014 08:37 PM|
TerraFlex Belly-up Skid
Ready for removal!
Compared to the TF...this is tin foil!
I cleaned up the Rust and treated it with rust inhibitor and the undercoating completely around the rail.
New transmission mount.
When you're doing it solo got get creative to hold the bolts while tightening linkage.
Finished skid installation.
Rear pinion angle
overall it was not that difficult to install. Just a huge PITA!

|tabber02||very nice John... any chance you thought about the Toyo MTs? i believe they have a metric 37 for 16" wheels.|
|04-06-2014 05:46 PM|
|Sinister6||A little flex with the Metal Cloaks...|
|04-06-2014 03:46 AM|
I love my creepy's! I say sell the set you have while price is still right and order the 37's. This winter you'll stretch, drop it on tons and move to 40's anyway
For now 37" will get you through all the trails you want to do with my crew for the season!
