Skid Plates

Im sure this has been discussed before but im sick and am not really in the mood for searching. Anyways... what im looking for is some pictures on how the factory front skid plates mount up. I also want to see some transfer case skids and how you guys mounted them. Annnnd I want some opinions on what thickness metal to use for both skids. I might be having some skids made here soon. Ohhh i forgot... Also want to see some gas tank skids.

I want to laugh because I think you're joking, but if you aren't, who the hell steals skid plates? The Bad Gnomes?

Mike all of your skid plate mounting points would be the same as where mine would be so post some pics of how all of yours are mounted.

So Casey, on your front skid did you run the bolts all the way up to the top of the frame? I thinking of making me one just like that for my truck. Is ok though to cut off air circulation to the p/s cooler though?

No they are not all the way to the top, the back two are the stock threaded holes for the sway bar and the front bolt is in the elongated hole already in the frame

and I've never had a problem with overheating, even on trail rides
