Looks good man. I got a big hunk of steel I plan on using to make some skids someday. Probably be a while though. I'm pretty lazy as of late.

No it's a gusset for the side of the skid near the t-case... Extra support... Might as well!

It's pretty light yeah haha

did you solid weld the gaps on the underside then grind them down and just stagger the topside that you wont see when the plate is installed for strength? i could build one like this if i had the pieces cut for me, dont have a plasma or oxyaccetylene to cut. learned alot in my 3 highschool welding classes. ill shoot you a pm
