    You do live on the coast, though. The salt in the air will get you if you have any exposed metal. I'd check the rest of the undercarriage while you're under there.

    I wonder if it's just localized to that area. If so, you might be able to drop the skid, cut out the infected area and weld on an overlapping piece of steel to patch it up.
    Yeah it's just that area. Seems like water and other stuff was caught in that area from where it attaches and eating away from the top down. Got a chance to pick around and this is how it looks now.

    I honestly didn't think of eBay. I'll heck that out. But junk yards are hard for me cause they are far and can only do it on the weekend which still is difficult.

    Mine looked that same way last year. I knocked off the rust, weakened metal, cleaned it up and painted the exposed metal. I plan to weld on a patch when I get time to pull the entire skid plate at some point in the future. Then I'll paint the inside and outside before re-installing the skid.

    I'd check local pick a parts. Maybe buy an after market skid and cut out that section and put the aftermarket over it?

    Any luck in fixing this? If not I have a welder and we could drop it and throw a patch on it for now.

    That would be fantastic! Are you sure your up for it? I think it would be a pretty taxing job?

    Make sure ur near empty. The skid holds the gas tank up. Just for clarification. I know how to weld but I wouldn't call myself a welder...haha. If you have local steel yards near you you can probably pick up some scrap that size for cheap. My schedule is kinda hit and miss right now but if things align I'm more than happy to help. It would maybe take a few hours (Famous last words..)

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
