Thank you sir, glad you you like it. If you make some please post some pictures.
I don't believe I used your Engine skid schematics, I used those first ones (so we might be talking about different parts).
I did use your t-case and Trans skid and they bolted up flawlessly! (again thank you!)
Yup, that's what I meant. The T-case and Trans. The engine skid really isn't mine yet. That is just my draw up of @samuel313
's plan with the only minor change being the bend allowance for 1/4" thick aluminum instead.
I'm glad to hear the bolt locations weren't a problem.
As for measurements, I have no problem getting you some, I am just heading out to a local trail right now for some winter wheeling so depending on how much ice, snow and salt build up I get today. I might wait for warmer weather to wash things off (more for me then for the pictures like... I hate getting stuff in my eyes!)
I think I would like to make a removable panel for simple oil changes; I will try and mark that out as well!
I do plan on making a gas tank skid in the near future, that being said, I leave for my honeymoon in 5 days and then I start a new job at the beginning of January so I will be limited on time for the next little while.
But again I am willing to help design and measure up for the gas tank skid and help where I can
On a side note I am also working on a roof rack, but my first cut out got an angle wrong so it needs to be re-worked. I will share that too once its ready.
I'd appreciate that, and I'm not in a big hurry. I'll probably focus on the gas tank for awhile and incorporate your suggestions into the engine skid before I make a cardboard mockup. We can call it the @CarRamRod
Engine Skid since it'll be your suggested changes. I was on the fence about the oil drain panel or putting in a remote oil pan drain. I read about them here, but I can't find it again. I also like the oil filter remote bracket thing too. @VMBiohazard
recently posted about doing one and I think it's the same one I saw on rockauto.
One thing I noticed recently was that removing a 15# t-case skid is no big deal for a fluid change. I can understand it being a complete PITA if it were 30-40# instead.
I've got a few partial roof rack models floating around somewhere, including the sketch with hole location measurements I took from the wetbox back. If you want I'd be happy to model and make dxf/pdf files of your project.
