The transfer case skidplate is complete junk. If you go over a rock or stump or something, the t-case will get slammed up into your transfer case. I would have made a custom one before I would have bought one on ebay.

What surprised me, is the skid plates actually pretty heavy duty... their not just sheet metal the have some thickness to them, however, if youtr going to do serious off roading with your vehical, then you should think about getting skid plates that are really thick and strong. the transfer case plate - the smallest of the 3, probably weighs about 30lbs.

Those are pretty nifty though, and the gas tank plate looks decently strong, what is the price on that one, I'd like to get it while I wait for my fuel cell.
When he hit that, my arm went into the front seat and I got a bruise the size of my fist. Silly Arizonians.

Could have gone to Busti auto in Jamestown NJ. My buddies only paid 50 for the pair of the gas tank and the transfer case. Look them up next time you need parts they are an all ford junkyard and are pretty close to you.
