I am considering a Rusty's engine-tranny skidplate vs a Skidrow engine-tranny skidplate.
Anyone have one or the other? Which do you think it better and why?
I had Skidrow before on a Wrangler, and it was good, but Rusty's offers a 1" drop cross member that lowers T-case 1" without losing any ground clearance (or so they claim). This intrigues me because if it works as advertised, I would not have to get a slip yoke eliminator and CV drive line for my 1" to 1.5" lift.
Note: I have a 99 XJ with AT, 242 TC, and Chrysler 8.25 rear end. So If I lift 1.5" or more, I'll probably have vibrations, until a solution is used. The Rusty's 1" drop cross member sounds like a potentially good solution because no loss in ground clearance, improved drive line angles due to 1" lower Tcase, and less money than a slip yoke eliminator..
