I finally got to working on my junk. I put the new skid up as far as I could and found out that I needed to cut the front lip to clear the trans pan and make sure the driveshaft won't hit. I went through 3 disks cutting theough that beast. I didn't get to breaking open the t case yet.1382671524458.jpg1382671547713.jpg1382671572918.jpg1382671596531.jpg

I went with the 2" skid. I used the AA mounts and got the engine as high as I could to clear the hood with no body lift.

Looking sick!
How much more clearance does the 2" drop offer over stock? You do NOT have ANY BL right?

I wish they made a 1" drop.
I'll be trying to get a 0" to work myself. Hopefully I can massage it in with a 1" BL/MML combo...we'll see.

Oh and I love the white top. Looks so rad!

Cheers

My exhaust guy put in a bracket at the skid. Even with the skid down it feels really solid, do you guys think I should make it work with the skid or call it good? It still has the one after the skid...

The 2" gives a little more than an inch. And my top is gray! Not some color matched JK bull****

A 0" skid would be awesome. Would definitely take some "massaging" even with a 1" body lift. Exhaust would need to be tucked up too.

And no, no body lift!

Looks white as my Jeep in the pics!
And the JK color vomit explosion makes me sick.

Exactly why I wish they made a 1" drop. Less headache, more ground clearance. Makes me just want to make my own....

I was thinking the same thing. By my previous measurements it is 1.25". My hard top got some action last weekend.

An inch is an inch for sure.
But 2.25" would be more substantial feeling. Without the total headache of a completely flat tummy....

Hmmmmm....

And day-um! What did you scrape that on? Sucks bro! You any good at glass work lol?

Cheers
