My 30 min skid plate

Fabbed this up really quick during lunch. lol I say fabbed, but really mean just threw together. Just trying to get some protection before heading to ure. I used some angle iron and flat metal. Cellphone pics suck, I know!! I'll get some better ones when I get it installed.




..and a badass Expo up the street, superlift, bl, 35's, roof rack, tons of lights!!




Hopefully I can get my sliders welded on this week with some help from the welder.
*crosses fingers*

Yeah, it's for the radiator. The top pic shows the bottom side, second pic shows the top side. It's 4x4x1/4 angle and 6x1/4 flat metal.

Can't find my good camera. But it's big and ugly so more detailed pics aren't needed. lol

I just attached it with the 4- 1/4 " stock bolts that were there for the plastic "skid plate". I don't think that's the best idea but hopefully it will work for just this weekend and won't fall off or anything. I plan on making a better one with an angled front when I get some time.

I busted the boot on a brand new tre. So I just wrapped the hell out of it with some duct tape.
