Help attaching TC skid to frame
I work for a metal fab company and had the guys make me a TC skid. I designed it to start right after my cross member and on just past the transfer case. I'm using 4 existing holes in the frame that are 1/2" to use 1/2" bolts. And then making one more for each side right at the cross member. My help question is how to attach to the frame? I see you guys talking about nutserts but don't understand how they work. I thought of welding a 1/2" nut to the frame and bolting into that. But then that will push my skid down that much when I designed it to be the same clearance of the cross member. So if I do the nut weld idea it'll catch anything sliding across it instead of being on the same plane as the cross member. Anyways, any advise would be greatly appreciated. Going wheeling Saturday and would love to have this on.
