New frame, glass, and mirror. Also installed the new dash plate and cleaned up some wiring. Who wires with duct tape? Installed the new led tail lights, I like how clean they look.

All I need is 4 more inches.

I dropped the tank, it's dry rotted at mid level. Also discovered the cross member is pretty thin now, lost about 5lbs or rust from using the impact.

I'll also be looking for a new skid plate, so let me know of any good ones (good direct fit).

I ordered the Fabtech Skid Plate yesterday. I saw this thread, and the pics at the end sealed the deal for me.

...or are you talking about the gas tank skid plate?

In a couple weeks I'm gong to have a Warrior Products Gas Tank Skid installed on my jeep.
I'll try to remember to PM you about it. It would be sooner but I'm overseas and my buddy is working on my rig.

Sounds good, there's not much left of mine. Swiss cheese and a pile of rust, i'm looking in to a half sheet of steel. Let me know how solid it is



Wish I could fab a new tank. It's hard to tell but these are stress cracks, probably from coming down on a log or something.
