    Anyone have some measurements or dimensions on thier skid plates? Maybe some pics or drawings to go with it. Im thinking of maybe trying to fab some up. Work is slow and I need to do something to stay awake all night. We also have a good bit of 1" round stock Ive been eyeing all week. Just can't think of anything to make out of it. Any ideas?

    I can't help you with the skid plate, but the 1" stock should be used to make a Artic Bull Bar.

    The 1" would be tiny for that light bar. That's 1.5 in the pic. I do like the style of those though.

    I'd love the dimensions of a front skid as well as a tranny/transfercase skid as well. I want to make one also. :cool:

    I might just have to bring a tape measure to the Rausch Creek meet and measure someones there. I guess I could crawl under my truck and just design something from scratch.
