Here's some pics of the one that's mounted to my jeep.

The skids are from barnes4wd. They have great reviews. They're basically a builder's skid. Not rdy to mount (that's why they're cheaper than all other skids out there). U have to build the transmission mounting area on them. They sell the skids for $120. I'm selling for the same price since I just got it in the mail yesterday (its brand new) but realized I ordered the wrong one. I wanted a flat/full tummy tuck skid. I'm just trying to get my money back. U could buy from them n pay the same amount... But why not help a fellow JF member and get it from me right

Anyways, like I said in the ad, ill build the mounting area on there for an extra $20. To do this, I cut a small rectangular section out of the skid where the transmission mount bolts would stick out and weld a 6" or so section of this piece of metal over the cut:

I then drill the holes in that section for the transmission mount studs to go thru. U have to do his because if u just drill thru the skid, the transmission mount studs won't stick out far enough to be able to thread the nuts on them and tighten things down bc the skid is so thick/beefy. Let me know if u have any other questions.

Skidplate is sold btw.


Anyways, here's a bunch of stuff ive done lately yo the jeep...

I mangled my front pipe on the competition course at rausch creek so i opted to go for a TJ front pipe swap. It wraps it around the oil pan up n out of harm's way

I also added to my rear bracket thingy to relocate my 3rd brake light and mount my cb antenna.



image-3453304675.jpg


I also secured my fire extinguishers with dryer vent twist key clamps. Those r awesome

Im also preparing for a full tummy tuck. And finally i removed my steering shaft in order to replace my destroyed lower steering column bearing.

I just made a cut in the skid and welded a piece of metal over it in which i drilled 2 holes for the tranny mount studs to go thru. Nothing fancy. Should work just fine.

Are u running a xmember? I think without some sort bushing mount the trans will crack from engine torque... what do u think?

Im using the stock rubber transmission mount. It bolts to a "mount" i built onto the skidplate. I think we're getting confused with our definition of "tranny mount". Anyways, the tranny doesnt lay bare on the skid. It does have the rubber mount bolted to it. The skid comes raw. U have to build an area for the tranny to be bolted thru. Am i making sense?

Thx. The angle is pretty steep at the TC output but thats what the CV driveshaft is for. Except that, everything looks/feels good. My pinion angle is a cool 2 degrees below parallel. Perfect.
