Brawler lite and expedition one rubi skid?

Just ordered a brawler lite through northridge! just waiting for it to arrive so i can go pick it Up. Sadly they were out of stock, now the waiting game.

So like a lot of us I spent a lot of time cruising the Internet for cool jeep related things and I came across something interesting, a brawler lite with a exp one rubi skid. Personally I think it is genius, gain 2" of clearance and get to rotate your e-disco out of harms way. My question is. Has anyone had any experience trying it? Will I have to drill the crap out of my nice new bumper of for some freak reason do they mate up correctly?

I don't believe they interfere, search google and you'll find others who are running that setup.

I went with an exp one front bumper, but not the skid plate. I just hacked off the crash bar or whatever, painted it and rotated the sway bar disconnect. I might get their skid plate one day but currently I'm not seeing a big need for it, though I'm not big into rock crawling anyway.

I've only seen one guy suggesting it hense the thread. I was looking at the exp one full width till I opted for a stubby. I like the idea of skids. Our parents always said to wear protection lol

I like the skid, but I was just just looking under there and thinking I would really have to straddle a big rock in just the right place for anything to hit the disconnect, that's all. The sway bar is under the radiator. I may add it later but for now I felt like it would just be extra weight.

I really want to get rid of that crash bar though. It looks pretty ratty now. Or at least cover it up
