OH, and my question still stands. Is this skid plate any good. How much should I pay for it at the "U Pull It". any suggestions as they dont even know what a "skid plate" is. How much did you pay???

thanks guys
I've heard of guys getting them for $20, think they are $65 shipped on eBay. It looks a little tweaked on the bottom, let them know that, maybe they will let ya take it off for $5

pincheburro956.....I'd give you mine, but shipping would be more than what I'd pay for one! A Bash Guard, Skid Plate, should be no more than 20 bucks!!! It would probably cost 40-50 bucks to ship mine to Tejas!

My shop has one of the better alignment racks available if it comes down to it. Just a little drive though.
How much would you charge me for an alignment? I might just drive out there tomorrow if you can make me a good deal.

Here's a pic of my new lift. It's in the employee parking lot across from the dealership I had the alignment done at.

First night back at school and it started snowing a few hours ago so went driving in it at 11:30. Then parked next to a lifted xj i usually see in the lot, not sure but looks like a 4" and its got 31" mickey thompson mtz's and a nice looking homebrew bumper.

Over the weekend I had new Bridgestones mounted/balanced (wish I could've done that myself but it was bitter cold and I lack the tools to make the job "easier")...215/75/15...I don't off-road and am more concerned with snow traction

Installed some mid-grade brakes and rotors up front

Have a new cap and rotor to install...did the plugs last weekend...researching some new wires before I deal with the distributor

I know we're really cheap and I want to say it's $49.99.

We do work by appointment though so you'd have to call in. The shop is Global Auto and the number is 574-268-1469

The alignment didn't cost me anything but I may continue my search tomorrow to find a shop in the area. It's way better than it was, but it's still not perfect.
I was in Schaumburg yesterday too!
