Anyone know what the slot in the skid plate is for?

It's kinda spooky looking but I was wondering what was the extra slot in the skidplate was for.

I know one is from a 1984 but unsure of the other one.

They are identical in all other ways.

I can see the two round holes are for a drain plug. I think. And depending which transmission and t-case you have, the drain plug would be in different locations. But the slot has me stumped.

I also notice one has a reinforcement in between the two holes.

Don't think I've seen one like that, but it looks pretty clean like it was that way from the factory. My 84 just had the 2 holes (although I had to "modify" one of them).

When I was younger, I thought I was Don Quixote... turns out I'm just another donkey-hootie.

The slot was used in 80/81 I believe. I have a pan or two with it.
I figured accessing the nuts on the rear of the yoke u bolts (before they switched to the strap style)

Ah yes,
I have an engine and Tranny/tcase from a 1980 CJ7 The dana 300 has the short rear output housing.

That must be year it's from.

I'll have to look at that when I bolt it back up.
