Engine skid

Has anyone installed a Rusty's engine skid and beat the S*** out of it?? if so how did it hold up? I don't have a shop to make 1 so I gotta go after market. At full droop still conected I've go about 1/8 inch gap and that's not why moving on rocks or anything. I'm open to other brand. it's just thier's look simple and that's a good thing.

Let's see if this works. www.rustysoffroad.com it's skid plate part #js-tj15. sorry but I never can get the cut and paste thing to work. it replaces the factory plate, one brace goes up over the front shaft. and the back end goes onto the t-case plate.

Yep that's the one! I did my 4" + 1" body lift with 1" motor mounts. no t-case drop needed and no binding, and man the ride is a lot smoother. the only probem I have that I can find(sofar) is the engine/tranny skid clearance. I can't disconnect because of it. we trimmed the factory plate just to keep some protection till I come up with a better plan.

Well based on past experience looks ain't everything, and I'm getting tired of out-smarting myself I guess I'm trying to convince myself it can be " just that simple".
