    Couple pics of the trans skid. Like I said, it still needs paint and a couple holes drilled so I can bolt it to the back of my IFS skid (the slanted peice will attach to the front skid) and there are a couple custom brackets welded to my stock crossmember where it will attach on the back.

    It covers just the tranny pan. The upright peices are notched to clear the tube going into the pan on the passenger side, and the driverside is clearanced a bit more for the driveshaft. I could have made the skid wider but I chose not to in an effort to keep the weight down as much as I could. It still covers what I need it too.

    I used Rustoleum graphite. It was the closest thing to gunmetal I could find that I liked the look of. Surprisingly it only took 1 can.

    I retrofitted them! I have Goodyear Wranger duratracs at 265/75/16.

    :cool:

    okay cool, thanks! i was wondering how that stuff looked on wheels. My dad has all the stuff to spray them with his real paint gun. But that stuff looks pretty good.

    np man! It turned out pretty great I think. Especially considering I painted outside on a windy day without a paint booth and I got pretty tired of sanding after a couple hours so some of it was sort of half assed. I was pretty happy with my paint color choice as it was very similar to the gunmetal I was looking for\.

    Truck looks good without, but for Moab, I prefer it on! Nothing like pulling into any ole place and throwing your sleeping bag in the bed...but maybe DC's are too short for that?

    As always...awesome rig;)

    I'm short (5'8") and the DC bed is still a bit short to sleep in. Bigger reason is I don't like the extra weight up high when I'm playing on the rocks in Moab.
