Looking to see how many people would seriously want a front skid if one were to be offered. Please post the price range that you would honestly be willing to pay and any details that you would like to see.

KJ and KK

Are you talking about something to bridge from around the bottom of the radiator area-ish to the front of the engine skid type of thing?

I finished design and prototyping on one in January, and am in process of getting it quoted as of last Friday. It connects between the core support and the mopar engine skid.

What equipment to you work with? Shear, press brake, mills, laser, tube benders, etc? I'd love to have my own laser or waterjet but have nowhere near the volume for one. Right now I subcontract all my CNC cutting.

I want one but as can be seen in my sig line I don't have an ARB. So I guess it would depend on the dimensions. It might work, but it might not. I think diamond plate aluminum would be great. It only has to deflect mud, water, sand etc. away from the engine. Price, I have no idea.

If you have one done as far as prototype I will put mine on the back burner for a little while. I have access to a full service facility at a discounted rate. I sub my work to them and finish product myself.

I would rather stick with products that have no competition. That way there is a chance of working with the competition instead of against them. From what stump tells me there are some brilliant minds here.

Two words: Front hitch. There are even plans floating around in here somewhere. It will be a while til I get to that one, and if someone else makes one I won't bother.
