Homemade Belly Up Skid

Hopefully around christmas I will have a new rear axle and a JB Super Short SYE with a Woody shaft. I want to put a flat skid on it but was wondering how hard would it be to build my own? The jeep will have a 1" BL so thats fine. But I was thinkin like 1/4" steel across. Anyone made their own? Post up some pics and what and how you did it. Thanks!

Get a 1" ML and you shouldn't have any real problems. Here are some shots of mine.

In this shot I didn't have the slot cut for the front drive shaft yet.

I also installed a AX 15, Klune V, reclocked the T case, and moved the engine 8" forward

I just finished mine today. After reading scotch740's write I was all over it. Doing it yourself will save you a lot of money.

I built one for about $60 out of 1/4" It's ugly, but it's taken a major beating. Eventually I will re build it similar to the one posted above but that's down the road.
