    I took my LCA skids off for alignment just before we hit pilot rock. And found out later I could have used em on the 2nd half of the trail. Definetly a good mod to have.

    haha dude that's exactly what happened to my t-case skid plate at Miller Jeep Trail the first time I did it, came down hard on a rock and bent that sucker just like yours. Caused some nasty grinding sounds when shifting because it had been pushed up into the transfer case. Especially under high RPM until I got it bent back into place.

    yeah it seems to be a bigger worry for first gens, not really sure why other than maybe because they're just older in general and more prone to failure. Definitely something I want to look into beefing up though, I'm not so much worried about breaking one and losing a wheel on the trail as I am damaging one on the trail and losing a wheel on the highway trip back home :goingcrazy:

Also help everybody with there stuff as needed.

    Yup I picked that one up on Amazon about a month ago. One of the best purchases I've made honestly, being able to communicate on the trail is important but you don't really realize how important until you've got a radio. Plus it's fun to be able to BS a little back and forth with others while you're wheeling :blahblah:
