    I want to try and do something myself first before I cave and buy skids. The list is continuing to grow

    I hear you. Seems like a lot of cake for some plate steel with a couple bends, holes and welds.

    Cut it and weld. The heat and extra material from the bead should stiffen it as well.

    The guys in my club I normally wheel with know its a bit more capable than it looks. The New guys we get once and awhile always come running back snickering to watch the tiny IFS truck try to get up the obstacle. My Favorite was one guy with his new JKU on 37's at Carnage hill. Said something to me like if that truck can make it up that ledge ill try it in reverse, After I idled up it he spent about ten minutes trying to make it up forwards:D
