So I have a dropped transfer case and I am looking to make som skids and angle them up so it doesn't plow snow this winter. What guage steel should I use and do you think aluminium would work? I do some off roading and want them to be durable. I could buy some but money is always tight and I have a metal brake and welder so I want to take on the project myself. Any suggestions would be nice.
I would raise my fatory skid back up to where it belongs before I put that much work into homemade skids.

Eventually I could swing it I want to do a sye. Basically I want something to get me through winter for now. Just a small up angled skid to keep tons of snow from packing in the belly pan like dirt does. something small would work from what I can tell.

Go get some 3/16" plate the length of the flat portion of the skid and weld it on at your desired angle.......
