The Jeep is still in the shop for hood paint so tonight I did a little more rendering. I figured if I'm going to have the bumper cover off and hacking it up I might as well get some shackle mounts in there. I'm also about to start a quad bi-xenon retrofit into headlights and upgrade my fogs, so I drew them in while I was working in Photoshop/Lightroom/paint. Here is a rough draft of what I want to achieve. Of course, the slots won't be this wide or the skid would almost be useless, but it gives me a place to start.
Ther fairlead for the winch will be integrated into the skid instead of above it. The shackles will mount behind the bumper cover, which will be cut around them. They will then be reachable through the slats.
I'll get rid of the Hellas behind the grill. They will be useless after I finish the lights and it will clean everything up in the front with them gone. I might do a black Saguaro grill insert instead.
This design will probably change about 10 more times before I finish it, but that is part of the fun! Feel free to give any suggestions/comments on the design as I'm open to input at this point. Otherwise, stay tuned!
