UCF Deep Cover Install Prep - Engine/Belly Skid, LoPro Mount

I'm looking for past experience and guidance during the install

Okay, so this weekend I'm planning on installing the UCF Deep Cover Skid System and I'd like to have everything I need at my finger tips prior to getting started. The parts I have:

Ultra High Clearance Skid
Engine Skid with Brackets
LoPro Mount
Rubi Pump Mount Bracket

Extra Tools:
2 Floor Jacks
Angle Grinder
4 Jack Stand

I've also got the instructions for the LoPro Mount:

What I'm looking for is (in the way of wisdom):

What extra hardware do I need to buy?

Are there any tips or trick you've learned?

I appreciate any help I can get.
-Thank you

I have installed the low pro mount, but still have the factory skid, so some of my experience might apply. In the instructions it says to cut the exhaust holder bracket that is part of the trany mount. Do lots of test fitting first and don't cut that bracket until you first check the fit. You may not need to cut that bracket. I had to grind some areas of the new mount cause I had interference with the factory skid, but you may be ok there since your installing the UCF skid.

Here's a thread on what I did to help the install of my lo-pro mount. Things didn't line up right for me and welding studs in place helped considerably in getting everything where it needed to be.

I also had to clearance my tub around the T-case linkage where the brackets mount to the floor. I took the linkage drop bracket that I got with my JKS BL, and flipped it upside down to use it reverse of which it was intended. (Raising the linkage pivot to keep the linkage square) I had a pain in the butt time getting my linkage to work right and even considered the Novak cable to eliminate the binding issues. Flipping the bracket helped but in the future I may still go the Novak route.
