Hey guys, I've actually got just two more front skids and 4 transfer case skids. I am swamped for the summer with my job in construction so at least for the time being I will be slowing down production a bit. I will try to still make them for those interested but my lead times might be a couple weeks vs a couple days. Anyway, if anyone is interested just let me know, I've got one powdercoated plate and one bare steel. and I think two of each for the t-case plates.

Hey Josh, your PM box is full. Somehow I don't have mounting hardwear, can you (or anyone) tell me what I need to go get to mount this beast? Thanks boys

^^^ On my 01 it bolts up where the plastic cover is. Take that off. I would highly advise to use loctite on the bolts.

No plastic cover on my 07 level II. We messed up and ended up using a 5/16 tap to thread the stock 1/4" holes but then obviously the 5/16 bolts don't hold tight. So we scrounged up some 3/8 self tappers and jammed them into the 5/16 we threaded. It's tight on there now but there's 2 rad hoses we had to cut some plate off to fit around. I'll shoot some pics tomorrow. Frig was it ever hard to find self tapping bolts in this town! Nobody carried anything bigger than 1/4". We managed to find some lying around in a friend's shop.

Sounds like you should quit construction and start making skid plates full time.

Haha darn maybe your are right. Yes they are very similar to OEM specs but they hug the radiator a little tighter so they are more compatible with bodylifted trucks also. (Plus they look better )

PS, I have a number of plates in the works right now so I should have some stock for the next couple weeks at least.

Stupid question, but would this work on a 95'? and re-drilling holes is fine... or is the transfer case mounted in a completely different spot? I'm curious as to why it wouldn't work on a truck older than 98' lol... I want one

Pre '98 trucks have an entirely different suspension setup so unfortunately these plates won't work for your truck
