Just a thought. What if instead of putting that 45* bend in there, you put a "C" bend in there. This would do two things. It would allow you to mount the skid in an upper location behind your bumper and it would give you a sturdy mounting point for off road lights. To explain it better. Keep the break you have in it now but put an additional 90* break just above the original followed by a reverse 90* break so that the remaining metal tucks up behind your bad ass bumper. So then you would have a flat spot to mount your lights. Hell, with a flat mounting spot like that you could make a removable hoop to protect the grill. The options are limitless. Like I said its just an idea.

By the way, that is one kick ass ride.

Man, you might have to draw me a picture on this one...I'm trying to figure out what you mean but I don't see it yet. Seriously, draw it out!

Thanks!

LOL, so are you going to scrap your lower bumper cover?

Re: Jay's 05 WK Build Thread

Are you talking about me trimming the bottom of the bumper? I am going to wait until after I do the skid. Then see what I think will look and work the best.

Yeah, that's what I meant, I thought you we're thinking about it. Hey, how's it going with getting a
Vendor to make your winch cradle?

Re: Jay's 05 WK Build Thread

Well I was never trying to get anyone to make it, but I believe SA has plans for one. S4xC has theirs out now. Slightly different design, but the end result is similar. Not sure it will work with a skid plate on the front though

As long as I have a large enough opening in the skid directly in front of the fair lead I think I should be good.

Their product looks good but a little pricey. I'm still probably going to build from your template and go that route.
