It's possible, however, you're going to have to do some tub cutting and play with new driveline angles, depends on your skill level. I would recommend a prefabbed belly-up skid.

Here's a link to similar modding...PBB Flat Skid

i have a sye kit and a tom wood drive shaft i am going to install and i figured while everything was disconnected i would just build a transfer skid plate or buy one if possible. and can you just buy a belly up skid plate for a yj? i can make one but id rather buy one so i dont mess up.. im only 19 and tend to make small mistakes on stuff like that and i have to drive to my relatives house to use there stuff.

i run one on my yj and did not have to cut any of the floor out. I just used a sheet of 3/8 inch flat steel and traced out the shape of the stock skid plate. I resused the transmition mount off of the stock skid. I used counter sunk bolts to smooth it out

here is a pic

i used the nth degree tummy tucker. it is a nice piece of steel.
not too cheap, but fits very well, and is a great design.
a motor mount lift, and sye are manditory. it is a very nice mod.

I went with the belly up kit. It's a complete and quality set up. It comes with the mounter mount spacers and I also put on a 1" body lift to maintain clearances and avoid having to cut into the body tub (more room for larger tires too). Big, beefy and flat skid.
