    project "totally tubular II"

    Ok well it was about time I did something to protect my investment and hard work. So I built me a new sub-frame/skid plate.

    I wanted to build a skid plate that was removable with out needing to brace the tranny and the rest of the drive train.

    So I built a sub-frame that would hold the drive train in place. Then bolting the skid plate to the sub-frame.

    This lets me remove the skid plate to work on anything I need to without all the work of pissing around with propping the drive train up!

    Sweet!

    If I was a Jeep, they'd have parted me out a LONG time ago.

    I'm a proud member of SOXJA ask me why!

    Thanks guys for your feed back much appreciated!

    Banger,

    The ground clearance is pretty much the same as the shitty old stocker skid plate that needs to be replaced after every season, lol!

    There is two much room under my JEEP if you know what I mean. So I wasn't worried about the ground clearance to much. I still have 23.5" of ground clearance!
