I've got a YJ that I'm building primarily as an overlanding rig, and I've got it in my head that it'd be nice to make a skidplate for the engine...not a "heavy duty rock crawling" skid plate, but mainly something to keep the elements and debris out of my engine bay and provide some protection. I got this idea in my head after reading this article
on ruggedizing vehicles. Has anyone done any lighter weight skidplates to close up their engine bay? Maybe using aluminum, thinner steal, or old road signs? Looking for ideas...pictures would be clutch (and majorly appreciated) if you have them!
