Skid Row engine and trans skid
« on: April 16, 2009, 11:04:22 PM »
What's up guys. Been off the radar past few days, damn laptop is busted, but I wamted to get some feedback about your e periences with skid row and their products. In particular the engine and trans skid for tj. I'm planning on picking up one of these asap, actually found one used for $200 locally so I am looking for your blessing about going through with it. Thanks!  Also, been looking close at their belly up skid so if anyone can comment on that please feel free. Looks like a good mod. Please discuss

take it from someone who just spent 3 days changing an oil pan, buy it no matter how much it costs. it's worth it. i just finished everything up and as soon as i'm sure i stopped the leaking i'm going to throw it back on. the only pain i found was drilling the holes in the transfer case skid but that's the least of the worries if you have to replace the oil pan.

man my body hurts from wrenching and laying on the ground. i'm waiting a couple days maybe weeks to tackle the SYE i just can't handle anymore engine/ drivetrain related work. luckily i have sliders i can install.

i got a skid row engine/tranny skid on my lj, it was one of my first purchases when I started wheeling.  Well worth the $$.

The fact that you know this is either impressive, or scary.


Other than a beat factory trans skid No skid plates here, just a dented oil pan  ;D

i still run a stock trans skid.  i am on my second one though.  it wasn't till i went to 35"s that i started to really bend the skids.  i also run the wimpy warn engine skid.  while it does its job.  im getting tired of bending it back.  get some skids and lets go wheeling

well it turned out that this isin fact thepoorly reviewed warn skid. I called the kid back kind of flipped on him a bit. He is gonna give me some money back orsome adjustable lca's. I think I'm gonna go with the latter 

As far as the warn piece goes I think it will be a good time to practice welding by putting some additional supports in the base of the pan to sure it up
