Eh boys, was doing a lil wheeling out at the acreage and I hit a bump and knocked my belly skid plate and it hung up a tad. Been doing some looking around at after-market skid plates and this tummy tuck thing keeps on coming up. What is this thing? Feedback, input, opinions, anybody like anything else better?
Not difficult. Use your head. If you wheel where clearance matters, gaining inches at the belly is invaluable.
"Tummy tuck" and "Belly up" are just marketing terms. It's a skid plate, just like the one you're replacing.
dude that looks sexy as hell...

I found an AEV tummy tuck on Craigslist for $150 (what a steal!). Then after installing it I had to add a 1.25" body lift and 1" motor mount lift. I still had to use some spacers due to the angle of the driveshaft, but I've fixed that now by adding an SYE kit and new CV driveshaft. It's now flush with the frame and I'm surprised by how much clearance I have now! Well worth it, but if you buy all the parts new, it is an expensive upgrade. $475 for the Tummy Tuck, about a $100 for the body lift, $100 for the motor mount lift, and then another $500 for the SYE kit and CV driveshaft. Wow, did I spend all that! Whew!
