Skid plate
 
2 Attachment(s)
Just bought this about a month ago. Can u tell me if this skid plate is stock, or has it been lowered? I bought the sye kit and cv. Should I put it back to stock before I put it in and adjust pinion?
Does anyone have a pic of a skid that has not been lowered.

The second pictures your stock skid plate with spacers. If you got a sye and new driveshaft then I would remove the spacers, no need for them.

Make sure you have adjustable upper control arms before installing your SYE. You can't adjust your pinion without them.

Yep I got adjustable arms. I think the PO may have put a mmL on it also. Will it be ok to leave that alone?

yes, I'd leave that on. Your oil pan is 1" higher to clear rocks and stumps and will keep you from having to adjust your pinion as much. Too much pinion angle messes with the bumpstops, spring angles, shock clearance, and trackbars (if you don't have the right bracket or an adjustable TB).

Well got the sye and the upper control arms on. Waiting on drive shaft.
I think I'm gonna need a adjustable track bar tho Bar is touching gas tank cover now

Do you have one of these? (Ignore the CJ in the link title)

That alone may keep your TB out of your tank. An adjustable is still a good idea though.

Yes I do, and I installed it. But it puts the track bar in such a bind I don't like. If one end of the track bar could rotate it would be perfect.
Everyone I talked to said I only needed one or the other. I need both.

The one in the link I posted is angled for the pinion. It doesn't go straight up from the stock but instead move it up and forward with a tilt.
