    Lmk what else you need, its off so I can measure it. I might pull off the tcase skid incase you'll make one too. Btw after removing it I bounced it up and down and measureing it went up about 1/4 in (its a bit heavy....)

    Nice truck man. A couple questions about your skids. How did you attach your t-case skid to the frame? And what thickness metal did you use for both skids? I'm getting ready to build myself a full set and I'm just trying to gather as many ideas as I can before I start mocking them up and gathering supplies.

    Thanks man :thumbsup:
    It has 6 bolt holes, front two plus two on each side
    (I'm only running 1-reason > I see it as a trail rig not a crawler)
    Its from 3/16
    I can take pictures of it for you, on how it mounts. I could remove it and post pictures on then ?

    You can see how the front mounts (see the bolt with the round head) the side of the skid bends up and has two holes, two holes through the frame then bolt through it.

    Oh ok awesome. I understand now. I'm probably going to mount it basically the same but weld square tubing to the rear of the skid that will bolt to the frame rails, kind of like a rear crossmember.
