I finished up my skid plate retrofit and install. It started it's life as a new Tomken TJ engine skid, then Fister reinforced it top and bottom.

I’ve had one galvanized before if you want to really kick the rust... makes it hard to weld anything to after the fact though. We did it in a buddy’s YJ after we prepped it for a SBC.

Got my boostworks transfer case shift linkage in. Not sure why it wasn’t this way from the factory, so much simpler than the setup they came with. And it shifts super smooth now.
