Bought some control arm skids from Skid Row for the Jeep.






I also bought a guard for the front differential.

Now when you hit cats in the road they won't dent your differential.

I had a front end skid like that and I fawking hated it. Made it extreamly difficult to remove anything on the front end, and it seemed to eat my sockets. But a sawz-all took it right off, and sold it to a buddy who wanted it

How do you like those control arm skids? My lack of welding abilities is keeping me from doing the weld on kind

I really like them. I got them cause i also don't have welding abilities. It was really easy to put them on. If you ever need to take them off for some reason, you can buy a new set of bolts from the company when you want to put them back on.
