Default Yj crossmember plow

I am thinking that it is time for a skid plate/crossmember flush on the YJ, Has anyone ever built one here, And/or has pictures?

Mine works great for clearing the high spots in the trails

buy the one from Barnes 4wd it's really cheap for what you get, and you can get flat 1" or 2" drop

i cut the old frame reinforcement out of the frame and added my own with regular nuts welded on the back out of 1/4 box

I had 35x12.5xR15 Toyos on my 01 TJ with a 4 banger and stock axles when I was back in Yuma. Ran just fine.
