Yup, love that redneck ingenuity.. I actually spent 5 years about 5 hours south of you in Lovely Terre Haute, Indiana.. Most of my buddies were gearhead/rednecks and no automotive job was impossible.. Well, at least not without a 5th of Wild Turkey!!

You don't know redneck until you have witnessed a squirrel taken out of an oak tree from 30 yards with a bow on a residential street! I miss those days!

I just wish we could get decent Biscuits and Gravy out here in the west..

Thanks again JD!

Right on! Thanks again for the Help Sir!

I thought it was way more complicated than that.. Another friend is loaning us a transmission jack, so it should be butter.

Thanks Hallissey!

Well, he was initially going to do a belly-up after thrashing his oil pan and stock skid his first time wheeling rocks on 31X10.50s, but decided to go with the Skid Row, new oil pan, and a replacement Stock Skid.

We were able to mount the skid-row to his gnarled stock plate which isn't good, but got us through a rally.. Now we are mounting it up correctly..

Also, we are going to throw a banks monster on while we have the skid plates down...

So, just one support point on the front of the Tranny huh!

Thanks again sir!

2005 Wrangler X Skid plate replacement

Hello All!

A buddy and I are planning on replacing his "Gnarled" 2005 TJ "X" stock skid plate tomorrow and I was wondering if any of you can clue me into the Support Points while performing this change.

I know that the skid plate is a transmission / Transfer case support, but I have no idea as to where to place the jack stands and Transmission jack.

Thanks for the help!

Timber
