Recent spending spree consists of: (bold items were just purchased today)

-Wheel spacers
-UCF Lopro mount
-Daystar 1" body lift
-Chassis Saver
-Front Antirock just purchased by the future wifey
-Novak Tcase 241 shifter
-RC Xflex front upper & front lower CAs w/ sway bar disconnects purchased off a forum member (will be selling the discos)
-Clayton Engine skid purchased but now for sale
-Currie Ultimate Steering Kit with Savvy Tie rod for $300!

Shopping list for after Xmas:
-UCF Ultra High Clearance Steel engine & tcase skid
-TNT Rockers
-Rokmen Gas Tank Skid
-Brown Dog Motor Mount lift
Wow... this looks just like my phase 2 build sheet, haha.... you'll love everything on your list. Also, before I went with the GenRight gas tank full replacement, I was looking at the Saavy skid plate. It's slightly better than the Rokmen only because you can get an additional 1/4" due to the built in adjustability with the body lift. As far as the steel vs aluminum on the UCF UHC skids, go steel IMHO. Aluminum won't matter if your not worried about the weight and already have everything else steel as well.

Looking forward to seeing it all in. Keep up the good work!

You only need the Lowpro trans mount if you are going for their Ultimate tummy tuck?

You should, in no way, take any of this personally. It's just business. So to recap, I come in peace, I mean you no harm, and you all will die. Gallaxhar out.

Yeah, I'm going more conventional (cheap). I dont really want to do a body lift, and I dont mind scrape'n my belly. What material you going with? I saw where someone recommended staying with the carbon steel.

Purchased a new pair of RC xflex rear lower CAs to have a full set of adj arms. Buddy I wheel with is coming over on January 7th to start the install of the body lift, mml, control arms, currie steering, antirock and hopefully the novak shifter. We'll see how much we get done. Till then have a happy new year everyone!

Placed my order today, but based on my discussion with UCF, I did end up buying the LoPro mount and went with the original extra clearance TC skid.

You planning on putting a winch on that bad boy? Gotta tell ya, once you get a winch, you start approaching Honey Badger wheelin' mode. Hehehe

Nice! Yeah def had to take advantage of the 25% off skids.

Did you get the engine skid as well or just the tcase? Steel or Aluminum? I went with the 1/4" steel

Ill get a winch eventually but when everyone else I wheel with has them its not a priority

Yep, I ordered the engine and transfer case skids in the thickest aluminum, but got an email today saying there are problems with the thicker aluminum cracking when formed so he has dropped that option for the time being. Going with the 1/4 aluminum instead.. Actually, I told himo wasn't in a hurry and would wait if he thought he could get the proper aluminum, but I'm not sure he considers that an option at this point.

Can't blame you for going to the skid first. That deal is to good to pass up. On my winch, I want to wire it up for in cab control next.
