Under Cover Fab's New Welds

They will not be arc welding their steel skids anymore, rather they will be mig welding all of their skids. No more complaints about tacky welding.

That actually looks really good. I think if it weren't for the fact that savvy is supposed to be 4"+, and I don't want to do it twice, I might have actually bought that.

Man, I'd be all over that UCF aluminum skid like stink on you know what if it only did not Require a body lift to be used.

Not an option in my book.

I bet you could make it fit by dimpling the tub, or using a low profile trans mount. There are ways to get things done.

i'm new to working on my jeep, i'm looking at tummy tucking. I have a 06 TJ, with 4"lift, 1.25" bl, automatic, skyjacker tranfercase shifter, SYE, and that damn huge shovel underneath, i noticed a steel spacer between the frame and the skidplate. If I remove that spacer, will I have issues? I'd like to flatten it out, but have to wait to buy or make a new plate. Just getting ready to start project....

Very nice work! It's great to see other manufacturers stepping up and offering the lighter weight high strength options for the folks to buy. Compliments to their Tig weldor as well, he does nice work.

x2 on the tig welds. The only thing that I notice is that the skid seems short. Look at the cutout for the front ds. It is such a small cutout that it can't go are far towards the tranny as other skids do.

anyone know how the UCF skid compares to the jeepmedic? wonder if it's a direct swap, meaning minimal adjustments. they look to be similar.

Guys Im pretty sure that is aluminum spool gun mig welding that you are seeing, I will chech into it to get a for sure answer.

Also, MrBlaine, that is pure class to compliment a competitor like that.

Now that welder does some real Purty work. That's stacking em up like dimes.


But yes rubidriver that is MIG not TIG work. Real nice MIG! Guess they solved that welding issue.....

Nice work UCF.

If I had to guess, I would say that the welds that hold the crossmember to the skid are spool gun and the corners are Tig.

The weldor has the welder set up pretty nicely and not that it makes enough difference for the folks here to understand, but the DIME thing is a function of how you Tig and is nice there but for the Mig, not so much.

Seeing as how I'm already on my second oil pan, I'm a big fan of oil pan skid plates.

Has anyone had any success adding an oil pan skid to the undercover fab skid? Just from the pictures, it looks like it could be difficult fitting, for example, the skid row skid I currently have.

How about Savvy? I can't remember anything about an added oil pan skid or not.

We will have everything with the skid that it takes to do the job. Engine skid, belly skid, trans crossmember, exhaust relocation bracket, motor mount lift, and engine skid mount. Complete system that works together.
