Incidentally, your dust light works great. We when we following behind those jeeps on the road, I couldn't see your truck at all, but that little light was bright as could be.

Ha. I have a tranny skid already. I'm needing a gas tank skid. I have some scrapes on the plastic skid that comes with the TRD OR, but somehow I'm thinking that ain't gonna hold up long.

And I agree with Darren on that fog light. I was following him, and couldn't even see his truck - but I could see that light on the back of yours, so that's what I followed Smile

Yeah, the main reason I got that little yellow light was for dusty ure days........I got rear ended once down there because of the dust, figured I would put a light back there to keep from destroying the vehicle behind he Very Happy

I am assuming you got the mounts I mailed you a while ago right? Why don't you man up and just go solid axle already tongue

Started on making a t-case skid.....

Basically a straight crossmember that clamps on the frame similar to the ATO one. Piece of 1/4" plate for the skid, then mounts to the crossmember and tranny crossmember...





Almost done......

Your thread reminds me that I need a welder... and that I haven't welded in 15 years.

Looking good though! Where do you get your steel stock?

Got it at a little local place called Asheboro Machine Shop.......really great pricing.......I got a 4' stick of 2x2x1/4 square tube, 28"x30" piece of 1/4" p;late and a 3' stick of 3x3x1/4 square tube for $70.

This is the end that clamps to the frame.....works perfectly....



Gotta drill 4 holes in the 3/8s tranny crossmember and it's done.......bolts up nicely......I might need to add some bracing on the top side of the skid for rigidity.....Might do that before I bolt it up....
