First off, that is awesome. Second when will the engine and trans skid be available? Will it have access holes so you can drain the oil without dropping the skid?

I'm guessing that it won't as that would weaken it and give it more of an area to get hung up on. I imagine the engine skid will be fairly easily removed so that it wouldn't be too time consuming to change the oil.

Gerald, will this work with auto trans on the 97-02 Jeeps with a deep trans pan installed?

This skid is nowhere near what the final production skids will look like. We are tetsting materials and fasteners now.

The modular design enables you to take the skids off very easy. Since there is a cross member you do not have to worry about the trans/TC falling down and the skid is a 1/3 of the weight.

The 2003 is an auto is the most difficult one to build. All manuals and early (97-02) are easier even with the deep pan.

We are in JV now testing and I can't believe how much less I'm getting hung up. I'll get some pix up as soon as I get to a good internet line.

Awesome Jeep. Works great even on 37's! Kept up with the guys on 40's. Gerald is one hell of a products tester! I think you need to make some of those tie rod ends.

God Gerald, Blaine must hate you for that. I can see you blinding people on the roads with that. That is sharp though. Is nice, but not very practical.

The Jeep lost 33 lbs today as I removed the extended gas tank and skid and put a fuel cell in the bed. The emission control system has already been relocated so the hoses were already consolidated to a single hose to attach to the new fuel cell. The electrical connection just needed to be rerouted and same with the fuel line. The stainless steel braided line use an AN-6 compression fitting on the fuel pump output so all I had to due is reattach the reroute fuel line and I was good to go!

I had been having trouble with the Jeep stating after it sat for a while. I put a new fuel pump in and now it dosen't have that problem any longer.

I don't believe we've seen those tapered taillights before... I guess you've got to keep some of the cool stuff to yourself
