here, on something i have made numerous times

this was actually seconds before it happened. what makes me mad is that i made way harder lines throughout both days and i break on something "easy" with only half hour left in the day.

Have you thought about building something out of 2x4 tubing with a hoop welded on the back side like the JKS XJ tcase skids? I'm thinking about building one like this for my MJ.

i have seen those before. a few things have me thinking though. i dont know how easy/hard it would be to unbolt the front d-shaft with that. plus i was thinking of doing rail to rail for strength. plus i was almost thinking of going further back with the skid almost to the front leaf spring hanger. that might be excessive though.

got bored today. i had a door laying around and...



this was mainly an experiment. i probably would have cut a little lower but i think it still looks good. im gonna finish the driver door up and put it on to see how i like it.

do you have to modify the linkage inside the door to get it to work like that?
