Looks like a great Jeep. Cant wait for more.

The clayton skid is awesome!

The Clayton skid is a monster. Earlier this year I found myself at about 13,000 feet on Wise Mountain with a problem. I turned and looked at my Jeep and noticed the bolts that secure the cross member to the frame on the passenger side had somehow backed themselves out and were gone. The skid and crossmember were hanging in space only mounted by the bolts on the driver side.

I had no idea when the came out on the climb. The bolts on the driver side did not fail. They kept the transmission and TC located well enough that I never even noticed the problem. The cross member did not bend or deform in any way.

Luckily, I keep a coffee can of bolts. Each time I take a bolt out for a project, similar bolts go into the can. I bolted the cross member back up and drove on without issue.

Good to see the progression. Glad you started a build thread. I'll probably be looking at your cross member when I build mine.

Any time. If you still think an Atlas may be in your future I can give you tip pre fabrication. I have to cut mine and reinforce it at some point this winter to allow for easy access to the drain plug.

The time now is 07:46 AM.
