Default Front skid plate

I've been thinking about making a front skid plate like that on the fx4's out of diamond plate and was wondering if anyone had some closeups they could post pictures of so I could get some ideas. I'd really like to see pics of where it mounts up. Thanks guys!

You can PM Redneckstone. I think his truck is a 2000 also and he has a front skid plate on his truck.

Talking Re: Front skid plate

seeing the thread got me to thinking, i may see what it will cost to make one up,or try fabricateing it myself ,and if anything needs welded up,see if someone around town can do the welding part.It would be tricky cause of the frontend setup on an 87",have to be two peices or bang the plate out to cover front diff.honestly i think all she needs is plate covering from behind the front diff,to just past the transfer case,if it's safe to stiffen the frame that away.
