I was going to see how this one turned out and maybe I will make others, but this sucker was labor intensive to say the least..
I was looking for a new skid plate since I completely destroyed my stock one, and I even beefed it up! So the new onoe will sit higher and hopefull be a little more tough, I may even add on some sort of slider to the bottom of the skid.

Hope it doesnt rain on me today!!
Soooo you could make more huh? Is this for the 20gallon YJ tank?

I need to buy or make a skid plate for my new 20gal tank. I'm upgrading since Im putting the 4.0L in. I was just going to buy one of the 180$ warrior brand ones that are diamond plated because I can't find any other ones besides JY ones.

LMAO. I know the feeling. I have told the wife several times a 2 car garage is mandatory. If a house she likes doesn't have one, we wont be considering it.

HELP. Everything has gone so dang smooth so far swapping the front axle except I'm stuck. How the heck do I unbolt the front uca's. they both have tabs that you can't put a wrench on but they done catch on anything either so they are spinning when I'm trying to unbolt it. If I had a welder id tack it on unbolt the nut and cut the tack but thats not an option cause i dont have a welder. How do I keep the tab from spinning

I ended up with a three car garage when I bought and wish I had a four now.

For those who are doing/have done an Auto swap. What is the rough cost for doing the swap. I love driving stick, but I'm thinking about converting my TJ over to an auto.

2003 was the first year of the 42rle auto. Before that the TJ used the 32rh. The 42rle is much more computer dependent than the earlier auto, more wiring, more issues, not necessarily a good swap. You can install the earlier 32rh, or, if you're up for the adventure, the AW4 from an XJ, both are better choices, but require a good bit of work.

Plan on at least $500 in parts alone if you either get lucky or carefully shop and source the parts. A more realistic range is at least $750 - $1000. Personally, I'd spend the money on upgrades first

StvDiego is dead on in the price, between $750 and $1000 i was lucky enough to grave a complete auto swap for $550 incluting;

-32rh tranny
-computer (ECM)
-Shifter Cables
-Break pedal
-shifter/bezel
-tranny hard coolant lines
-Torque converter
-tranny mount bracket
-shift cable bracket
- tranny mount

the only thing that I had to buy some place else was the flex plate and a cooler for the tranny. Just be in the look out to get a complete swap. good luck

Thanks guys. I'm just kinda seeing what things cost, to get an idea on what I want to do first. I think I'll start working on fabricating some new bumpers/fenders, and go on from there.
