my next jeep investment....
 
After a recent wheeling trip down to Disney Ok, I've relized I NEED MORE STEEL!:D Bent up the trans/t-case skid. Took chunks out of the front and rear diff's, and smacked the gastank skid a couple times.

These pic's suck and dont show the damage very good .. the tank skid has a new upward dimple. and the trans/t-case skid is all jacked up.:punk:

I'm lucky I got a steering box skid on there before i left...it took two good hits. :wavey:

i don't see the problem:) they're working perfectly.

looks like normal trail marks to me, i wouldn't go out and spend a bunch of money, you can make a diff skid plate real easy.

i like seein some twisted metal, good job:appl:

Yep you need some skid plates. I own ALL of them so if you need some advice just let me know. :D

Ok, nevermind, I won't help. :flipoff:

distortedtj 06-11-2008 06:42 PM

but, but, but, ....thats what your here for! :rofl:

mr4x4 06-12-2008 03:09 AM

your trans skid is pretty straight mine is really jacked up compaired to yours and its not as bad as some that Ive seen
before I got my gas tank skid I had a bigger dent then that in it
as for the diff your just shaving it down for more clearance:D

richp 06-12-2008 07:36 AM

Pick the spots it took the hits on and weld on or bolt on some extra beef.

debruins 06-12-2008 08:24 AM

if you make your on diff guards could u post up soem pics, b/c i ahve the time this summer to do that, but i dont know quite how to do it

MOz 06-13-2008 11:49 AM

Nothing to get excited about or lose sleep over.

However, if you intend to abuse your diff on a regular basis, I woud suggest an upgrade. The belly pan is barely scratched.

distortedtj 06-13-2008 06:41 PM

AS STATED above the pic's dont show the damage that good. And the "belly pan" trans/t-case skid is smashed upward Cant tell in the pic's.

New armour is in the works. I dont jimmy-rig my junk. It'll be done right the first time.

MR.CLIFFORD 06-13-2008 07:06 PM

my wifes junk is beat up worse than that. Does she need new ones too :flipoff:

distortedtj 06-13-2008 07:13 PM

no your selling it....this is just my way of justifacation for belly up and new toys. lol

By the way Andy does BTF make brackets for a 8.8 for a tj swap? If you know.

MR.CLIFFORD 06-13-2008 11:14 PM

I don't think they look exactly like the stocker TJ brackets but they do have enough brackets available to weld it in place. If you are looking for a complete kit you should check out RE or MORE. I want to say they are relatively similar in cost.

Dirk can get you either if you so desire. :)
