I told you how to get around that. It's just a ton of work to flat bill that RE skid. You know they can get a hold of some steel. Just have him make you something and incorporate the CA mounts into it.

Well that remains to be seen for a Belly Skid. They did a pretty nice job on the tank skid, but I've got to have way more trust in the belly pan than the tank area. I do however like the thoughts he was having on JF about doing it with a cross-member style like 33 did.

Have they said how close they are going to be able to get it to Flat? Hell Flat is worth about 4" of suspension lift.

erickpl 33 Engineering or the Savvy skid here.

jwm1986 I like the one by 33 Engineering personally. It has a seperate piece to hold up the xfer case and tranny then the skid bolts to it. Needs to 1 inch body lift to be installed how they recommend but isn't needed.

snwchris OK, in the case for Rubicon models, since it has the larger T-Case it typically requires a BL to be used or somesort of dimpling of the tub, to clear the entrusions on the T-Case.

Duck Dodgers I run the TeraFlex belly up pan. Did not need to do the BL or exhaust mod. Just bolted it up.

snwchris I'll be upgrading soon as well, and right now the Rokmen one is on the top of the list.

Most Belly-ups require a BL as well for the maximum clearance available.

Jerry Bransford One of the Savvy partners (Gerald) just told me they are looking at being in production in August, that's not too far off at all.

Belly up kits

OK, I am looking at belly up kits, looking for suggestions from you fine folks on WF. Who is running what and how easy was the install, what kind of exhaust changes, etc...

Let me know your thoughts and opinions.
