    I am good with that. It already weighs 6600#... If it was 7k and they wouldn't dent I would be happy as shit!

    Heck I would have paid double! Guess there could be a market for it!

    Unfortunately I think your going to be disappointed with pretty much every skid plate option there is. I bent mine just goofing around last weekend flex testing. It didn't feel like a hard hit at all but I bent the oil pan trans skid enough to split the seem on the passenger side where it angles in. I just got a big ass pry bar a hammer and bent it back enough to weld up the split. I think the bending soaked up the hit so I too was surprised how much it was bent. It's just part of the game. Wait until it touches the exhaust and rattles. It will drive you nuts!

    Yup. Kinda where I am at. It is what it is.

    Stay tuned for pics of an AR-500 skid plate that looks kinda like a hard rock.

    I feel I need to touch on this a little... Not once did I ask for a refund or free replacement product.

    Only thing I asked for was for them to "do better".

    Design change... Metal change... Product update... New HD Extreme version that costs double. Whatever. I am even willing to help if I can.

    I think that would benefit us all in the end. One less thing to worry about at the end of the trail.

    Just curious how much did you have to modify yours to clear the bigger pinion area on the d60 front? I had to move the driver side bracket as far back as I could then drill a new hole, re drill the crossmember holes to shift the entire skid to the passenger side almost an inch and cut the driver corner off to clear the webbing on the d60.

    I had to do close to the same. I ended up cutting off about 1.5" on the drivers side and welding the vertical bend back on to clear the driveline.

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.
