Zj armour

I have a 98 zj and currently have 4" of lift and 31's and always go offroading with people with much larger vehicles so they always dare me to try the same obstacles. most of the time i do try them and get over them. however there has been a couple times where a take out or hit my crossmember or other under belly parts
so basically i would like to see what unberbelly skids you xj and zj guys are using \

gas tank skid:


engine/tranny:


TC:

there are better Tcase skids out there but we have the 242 and a lot of them wouldn't fit it, or cost a large pile of $ more.

stock crossmember?
I have the Clayton 3 piece cross-member and I'm not so sure how the Rusty's tranny skid will mount to it.
Would you be able to take pics of how it mounts to the cross member?

as you can see the TC skid has taken a lot of hits!
