Cool, I was trying to figure out where to put the mounts up front. I didn't think mounting the engine block would be a good spot for supporting any weight. Probably better then nothing but I could see that become an issue with a lot of weight.
Not to the block - the frame side of the motor mount bracket. There are holes already.
Alright, that's what I didn't want to do was mount to the block side. When I get some time I will get a plate of 3/16 and I have some cr 1/4" and alittle plate I can use for brackets and reinforcement. I want to make bumpers too, so I have lots of work to do other then my real job.
Can anyone see a problem mounting a full skid plate to the existing tans bar on the rubicon and plating over the gap to the crossmember? I figured the more support under there the marrier. It looks like on every other skid plate out the they take it off and just mount directly to the crossmember, but I don't do anything conventional.
Finally had a couple nights to get this thing done. One of those pictures you can see how much damage my fuel tank is taking may do that one next. But before more skids I am going to do a stubby front bumper.
