I don't know how you can design the rest of your skids from aluminum and not some control arms? Aren't you technically dragging your gas tank skid across the same rocks the control arms would see?
I still understand the strength issues, etc. and I'm not questioning you. Merely wondering where the logic is in that.
The LJ looks great. Could probably just scuff up the chrome and hit it with some krylon flat black if you're really lazy.
