    Were goin to find out in November:D

    Yea sounds like it would work, The reason it does wrap around the crossmember is to protect it from rocks, Im was pulled out on a coner and had to beat it back flat with a 15 pound hammer(BFH):D

    there would be a very minimal gain in clearance by doing that... i intentionally wrapped it around the front of the crossmember to help protect it as well.. i've noticed quite a few crossmember beat up pretty bad from dragging on rocks.

    on my truck its bent up enough that you can take all 4 bolts out that hold the center removable part of the crossmember in and it still dosnt move.. its pinched in place now.

    How much are you charging for the skid plate?
    Rough idea of shipping to the west side of the country?

    the skid plate sells for $325 plus shipping.. if you give me a zip code i can get a quote on shipping.


    NOTE!! this specific design requires that the exhaust crossover be rerouted behind the tcase to maximize ground clearance! this allows the skid plate to have a completly flat bottom. we will be releasing a skid that dosn't require any modifications to the exhaust within acouple weeks, it will incorporate a recessed area where the exhaust drops down.

    heh, i replaced that crossmemeber about 2 years after i hit it with a stump. that thing is a bitch to get in and out i had all the bolts out expecting it to fall on me and it just sat there. i had to pry it out and putting it back in wasnt any picnic either

    yea.. well this design should help prevent that.. by wrapping around the front of the crossmember it should allow the skid to take the hit instead of the crossmember.

    How much would shipping be to 87110? I was asking about the front skid but I think I'm going to get the t-case one first.

    hey Kevin, any chance it could go straight up (i.e. closer to the case)? Looks like there is space down there.

    p.s. our crossmember is stupidly in the way:(

    yea i noticed that when he first posted up the pics and thought about that myself. since his was the prototype i was trying to make sure there was enough room for it, since on mine everything is different as far as the tcase. i suppose one good thing about that particular design is it will cover everything even with double cases.

    i am most likely going to shorten it up a bit overall being as though it extends so far back beyond the tcase.
