They come to be used like this. Usually gas charged shock are not efected by the position you mount them

Not a fan of the cover up style gas tank skids, If you go with a Kilby, you raise it an inch, here you lower it a 1/2", net difference of 1.5" is a lot, especially on Unlimiteds, always banging mine.

yes that was part of me not following the directions. I put it the other direction and thought that I needed to wittle it around my exhaust. So I got out the torch, and the the grinder and went to work Thats why I wrote read the directions unlike me

Looks great. I love the way the engine skid flows into the RE skid. The only piece I wouldn't go with is the gas tank skid, but you still have a nice setup.

The Skid Row gas tank skid is a quick and easy upgrade that will help. It really doesn't look too much lower than my Warn skid.

Fantastic coverage. I'm waiting for my first piece of amor: oil/engine skid on my '08 Rubicon. I can't wait. I have to say though, I'm a little worried about that notch on the same skid. That notch is way too large, and in the weakest point, for such a long piece of angle steel. I would like to suggest to Dogman to find another way or minimize the damage to the integrity of a structural piece. I greatly enjoyed your posts.

Well that sucks - I just noticed my skid must be an earlier model and only has the one triangular reinforcement bar running down the side, not the two showin above. Oh well I'm glad at least they're improving the product

The top and doors on this vehicle are designed only for protection against the elements. Do not rely on the top and doors to contain occupants within the vehicle or to protect against injury during an accident. Wear seatbelts at all times.
