I also recommend these Genright lower control arm brackets. They are 1/4" and about $40 for the pair...
I think the factory brackets are 1/8 if that. Mine folded super easy. I replaced them with Rubicon Express brackets shown below...
but they were "only" 3/16 and were bent easily when I rolled over. After those folded is when I went with the genright brackets

But a little info on your jeep would help ALOT bud. Please take the time to fill out your jeep profile please. It will help us help you in the future.
Also there are several companies out there that make skids for the oil pan.
Most use braces that bolt up to the motor mounts and then extend back to the t-case skid and bolt to the bottom of it. A sheet of steel a couple of pieces of steal to make braces up to the motor mounts and some bolts. Not much to them.

I am looking to fab my own skid pan for the engine/oil pan... is there anything I should be worried about and could I just bolt it to the frame and have it mount up to the t-case skid?

Thanks, distorted. That helps a lot.
Not sure if that's a leak or a stain. I had all the seals replaced under the 7/70 warranty I transferred not long after I bought it. They replaced one of the mains a second time under their own warranty. Since it's due for a service, and still under 7/70, they get to check all my seals again!
I'm really glad I trasferred the warranty. Only downfall is I'm trying not to do any mods that could cancel it. But, I'm only 6,000 miles from the warranty running out, so it soon won't matter anymore.

BLUE..Transmission/ Transfer Case skid. They are fully supported by this skid. "the four bolts in the middle of that skid..is the transmission mount bolts.
GREEN...Transmission pan skid plate. protects your automatic transmission pan. ""only on auto trans models""
RED... Transmission pan.
PINK... Rear main seal leak...standard on all 4.0L engines. ...no really it is. So don't feel that bad.

|distortedtj||It's nice ain't it. The color changes at times from Girly Yellow to Barbie Gold. It's AMAZING!|
|05-07-2010 10:38 PM|
I really like your Rubicon, DTJ. That yellow is just stunning!
|05-07-2010 10:37 PM|
I'd say so.
Actually it's almost 1st break time (11:00). Lunch is at 1:30A.M.
|05-07-2010 10:33 PM|
|distortedtj||Lunch is over. where's the pic's?|
|05-07-2010 06:50 AM|
|MCDavis||I'm pretty sure it's all stock as low as it hangs. I'll try to take some pics at lunch today.|
|05-05-2010 09:44 PM|
|distortedtj||No problem bud just get me the pic's and I'll let you know what you have, whether it's stock or after market we'll let you know.|
|05-05-2010 01:11 PM|
Thanks, distorted...that's the suspension pic I was remembering but couldn't find (or, you created one very much like what I've seen before).
When I get home I'll see if I can get a decent pic of the underside. I've got 2 skids and a crossmember, but I just don't know what each one is. Since I'd like to do a TT, and I've got my eye on a used engine/oil pan skid, I figured I might want to know what's under there first.

|CMEvans79||Do they make lower control arm skids? ... I need just one big flat piece of metal across the entire bottom, that would work as a "Skid" right LOL ... I AM JOKING of course.|
|05-05-2010 12:49 AM|
Or go find me some underbody pic's of a TJ.
|05-05-2010 12:42 AM|
|jdhallissey||^^ I dunno if you could trust this gubberment worker lololol.|
|05-04-2010 11:39 PM|
As for the rest....I can't find a picture of a stock under body TJ.
If you go take a picture or two of yours, I'll label it up like the picture above as far as what is what bud.

Diagram of underside of TJ/LJ
I'm looking for a diagram (or something) that identifies the parts underneath the TJ/LJ. Specifically, I'm trying to figure out the stock skid plate set up. I think I know what's what, but I'm just not sure since I haven't started mods yet.
Suspension would be helpful as well.
Thanks for any help you can give!
