Default Skid plate

Just a quick write up on a skid plate i made for the rear diff after tagging a rock. I used the skid plate from the front diff on a early 90's chevy truck. The front edge tucked into the channel of the rear engine crossmember to which I added two bolts. I formed the curve for under the center of the diff and also where it wraps around the round crossmember tube with a section of railroad track and hammer. A little heat helped with this as well. Large self tapping screws hold the rear in place. I may cut the excess off when I get a minuet but for now its good to go. Still have not figured out why some pics are sideways. Resolution maybe?

looks nice. You may want to through-bolt those though with a nyloc nut and washer. otherwise it'll probably loosen over time, and after a good smack you'll leave it behind on the trail.

How critical is the integrity of that section of tube the shocks are mounted to? I was not sure if drilling what would be six holes would weaken it. Maybe weld nuts to the tube and use lock washers? If it wont weaken i will through bolt it as I dont want to lose it. I can reform the aluminium plate if need be.
