Anyone put together some protection for that lower A-Arm? Smacked one pretty hard on the trail the other day and was thinking of making a simple skid to give a little protection.

IFS is VERY different than SFA! when rock crawling :shock:

I wonder if it wouldn't make more sense to just rebuild the A Arms to be longer + stronger, rather than building a skid for them.

Yea, that would be the best bet. However, I don't have the skills or the equipment to fab up new lower A-Arms. I have some 14 gague steel sheets lying around and just thought I could whip-up some skids.
