Anybody have a completely flat skid plate?

Hey all,

WHile doing my tub swap, I am making a 1.5 body lift which is going to weld to the original frame mounts. When doing this, I am going to raise my drivetrain up as much as possible to hopefully go with a flat skid plate right under the frame. Just wondering if anybody else has done this or not.

Thanks. ..

mine is completely flat, but the jeep needed a 2" body lift for the tranny to clear (NV4500) a smaller tranny wouldnt be such an issue

Re: Anybody have a completely flat skid plate?

i have a piece of 1/4" steel for a skid plate.. im running a tf727 with a clocked d300.. and i didnt have to jack up the drivetrain.. well.. just enough to put it on the skid... i also do not need a body lift.. everything clears just fine... but keep in mind.. my engine mounts are not stock.. and i have no idea how far off they if at all.. since i welded in some cj/wagoneer frame mounts to my yj frame.. i tried keeping it as low as possible..

and now with me running a dry sump.. i would like to go lower.. but ill have to wait till the engine is in.. to check the angle on it.. more than likely it will stay where its at

I am running a flat skid. Had to build a console in the jeep body to push everything up into. Lots of work but worth it.
