For those that had concerns about the ink jet printing that the mill uses to identify the material and temper, a quick squirt of brake cleaner removed it so fast it was pathetic. The mill should use some tougher ink.

Just read the review Blaine posted. I just wanted to say, the free shipping for military personnel is awesome. Thanks for that. I can't wait to see what else you guys put out!

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

It seems to be cheaper than the Kilby and Skidrow plates, too.

Moab was fantastic! We ran Upper Helldorado, Prichett Canyon and Behind the Rocks. The LJ I installed the gas tank skid on normally drags on everything! However, his Jeep has been put on a diet, the skid is now tucked further up and the departure angle is better than his previous skid making it difficult for it to hit anything.

The hits it did take did nothing!

Here's one:

You need the dimple unless you weld some sort of extra support system for the gas tank inside the skid plate.

Adding more weight, which is at least part of the point of this skid...
