Default Fj60 and Fzj80 skid plates/belly pans

Steve, Jackson and I are planning a trip out to Rubicon this summer. We need some more armor, so I thought I would see if anybody else is interested in some.

Fj60 belly pan will be 1.5" DOM tube with 1/4" plate. It will replace stock skid plate and retain all fill and drain locations.

Fzj80 skid plates will be bent 1/4" plate. Haven't quite figured out exact design, but will likely be a seperate belly pan and transfer skid.

I figured if I'm going to make these, I'm going to set it up so I can make multiple.

Price will be great. They won't be painted. Pm me if you are interested. Will likely make 5 of each.

Also, no modifications to frame, and hopefully use all existing hardware.

I've got the iron pig plate on my 80. You're welcome to look at it for ideas and measurements if you want to do something similar.

I'm in for an 80 skid plate if it's anything like the IPOR one and for less price. I even have a 1/4" large skid to offer for material or use elsewhere.

That sounds great. I was just going to check out Steve's 80 and try to make an "original" design.

As for when we are going to rubicon, we are going to sit down and make some plans tomorrow.

It will be cheaper, and planning on it having the same features. It will not be powder coated though. I can spray it with some rust oleum through my hvlp for a bit extra.

Cool. I'll be at a place called Dinky Creek 7/18-25. It's near the Rubicon and I'll have my rig + be with a few others. Mainly a family camping trip with a little wheeling thrown in.

Sounds great. Been wanting a skid...just didn't feel like paying quite as much as the going rate let me know if you need anything else from me?

I'm going to follow to see what an 80 belly pan would be like. I have the t-case skid and it has seen its fair share of abuse but the only other parts I usually hit are the rear lowercontrol arm to frame brackets, front control arm to frame brackets and muffler.
