Some stuff I did.


Recommended Posts

So I mounted a factory skid and a bed mount tire carrier on my truck. Here are some pics. But first a few poser shots. :D

Now,

The skid plate fresh from the yard

Cleaned it up a bit and welded in a tube

Paint

And in place

Now for the cheap A$$ tire carrier

The carrier is rock solid. All in all I am satisfied. jamminz.gif

It looks like the factory skid plate protects the tie rod or is it to keep branches from popping up into the radiator? I quess some projectile headed for the oil pan would be deflected down into the axle. Hopefully below it. Or is it to simply slide (skid) over a rock? I can see why you add the reinforcement.

Never mind it looks like I anwered my own question.
