    WTF is up with those lines? It's the only reason I had an aftermarket skid on the JK.

    I asked EVO about 2.0 skids about a month ago, they said the 2.0 prototype is done. They are waiting on production now, but said theyíre buried.

    I could only find two companies making individual turbo oil and trans skids currently. Not counting the 300 pound, 65 bolt, $1500 full belly options that are out there. Dealt with of those once on JKX and wonít be doing that crap on my own jeep. With that style your skids turn into a bbq grill waiting to burn the fuck out of anyone trying to take them off when needed on the trail. Beyond that you canít inspect much when you need to.

    One company had a a couple month lead time and the other was Rustyís Off-road. Iím impatient so went with them. Fairy stout 3/16 thick with gussets down the length and width and weight of 53 lbs. Two motor mount brackets, skid plate, fasteners and bolt protectors(we will see if they work) are included in the box. It has an access panel to drain plug for oil changes. I donít see those Allen heads lasting long in rocks. Might just leave off.

    No instructions were included so I emailed them. No response. No big deal though as brackets were marked. Just slip over motor mounts and thread nuts on. Removed factory .02thin cross bar and used my floor jack to hold while bolting. 1/2 hour or so to do.
    Cooling lines protected now which was main reason to install.
    Lesson learned: Working under a stock height jeep on a garage roller sucks. IMG_0722.jpgIMG_0723.jpgIMG_0717.jpgIMG_0731.jpgIMG_0745.jpgIMG_0754.jpg

    That's a pretty clean simple design. Hope it works out.

    Glad you found something. Looks like it'll do the job.

    How come none of the skids Iíve seen have openings or drains? Iím totally worried about shit packing up in there and catching fire like the original JK trans skid design that Jeep had to recall. I guess that added maintenance of cleaning it is just part of the deal or am I being paranoid?
