WVU Mountainman Good eye. I indeed missed that. Gotta love our TJ's that rust from the inside out. I'd be less concerned about a small hole near the body mount than I would be a control arm mount.

Of course no way to tell until you drop the skid.

Look at the last picture. You must not be seeing the hole next to the weld from the body mount. I'm not sure about you, but if my frame has enough rust to have eaten a hole through it, you won't find me driving it.

kshaws21 Be afraid, be very afraid!

This skid plate looked just like that one when it was together, when it was pulled apart the bolts just completely fell out of the frame. Somebody suckered my son into buying this one, we fixed the frame by having it cut out and new pieces welded back in and sold it for same price he paid for it.

Big Sarge That's a d35 axle. Rubber plug is a quick tell of that. Rust does not look too bad but you need to look more at the frame rails especially where the control arms mount
