Nice, but that skid hangs super low. You have a welder, correct? I'd try to cut some slack out of it and weld it back together. Weld a fish plate on the inside for strength.

Ordered the spectre cowl intake and 4.1" oem bumpstops today, now i can ditch the rear swaybar. Thinkin about throwing a glasspack on it or just waiting and getting the iro cat back.

It's a Jeep, it's not supposed to work right all the time.

You took your doors off? You do know if you wheel it, it will fold in half, right?
