If its anything like Blaine has built in the past the rubicon under armor will come with everything you need, no matter where the pumps end up. I cant see needing to relocate the pumps, but i am not Blaine.

Greg and Apex,

You guys rock! That gives us some good numbers to compare to.

So we are 7 pounds heavier that the late model (03-06) trans and TC skids.

Thats great because we also protect the engine!

Let's talk about aftermarket steel skids. My old Teraflex was at least 80 lbs and I bet you with the Skidrow engine and trans skid closer to 130lbs.

That is some serious weight loss!

My skidrow engine skid is a pig on weight, iirc its 47lbs. So your setup really cuts the weight out, nice, very nice.

I had the UCF no TT steel plate at 1/4 with the a/t pan skid, it was a beast, way too much, I don't have a exact number but well over 60lbs

I did it for the greater good of JF and the Savvy crowd.
Now that's what I call putting it on the line for the good of the community

How much is the clearance gain?



What does the MML do? How does it work with this set up?


These questions indicate that I am not an early adopter.


Afterall I cut my hand today while opening the box on the gas tank skid.
Pretty funny I was on a conference call when the skid showed up I had to take a look while talking to a group of 22. Not sure how many heard the "ow" as ripped open the box for a look.

I guessing around 3-4 inches of extra ground clearance. The Under Armor is 1.5" below the frame rails at the center skid and less on the wings.
