All good. I know how it is kinda the reason i started welding in the first place. Once my f150 is back on the road (which it will be this weekend) I will be able to go ahead and start doing all the little welding projects i want to do on my jeep.

How much do you think it would cost to make a full engine skid? You'll be my next option if my local club cant make it.

Email isn't working so I'll post the measurements here. The skid row skid is said to be 20" long but I don't see how because then it wouldn't cover the entire pan.

So here is what I got

31" long.
13" wide.
driver side motor mount arm 15" long.
passenger side arm 12 1/2" long.

They should be right but I cant tell where they meet up since its all just air.

That should get you a price area I hope.

Those prices dont look too bad. The only problem is the driving distance, so we'll need to figure that out.

Well the nice thing about it is i only need your jeep to tack every thing in place once im done with that part then i will be doing all the welding out of the jeep and that wont take long at all. Depending on when you want this done and which welding im using will depend on how fast we can get it done. Im working on a deal right now with a guy and i might be getting a ranger 225 for my truck soon and if i get that then we can weld all day and night with out having to give the machine a break. :2thumbsup:. But we should be able to get it all done in a day.

Does the Jeep actually need to be there? Is that for the measuring? I know I have a family member going to Sac on the 29th. I think we can figure out something by then.

i can do it with out the jeep but then you chance it not fitting right or something not being perfect. One thing about me is im a perfectionist and like stuff done right the first time. the part that bothers me are the arms thats going to hold the plate up. I want to make them out of 1x1 box tube that way it wont bend easy if you some how land on the skid plate. We can figure something out thats not the problem its just trying to make it easy on you thats all.

Alright. I don't think it will be a problem getting it there then. The 30th might work as the 29th we would arrive around 9 because we would be coming from Bodie.

After 5 is fine. My father has a meeting til around 5-6 so that would work fine. Even the 31st or 1st depending what the following day is would work. I'll be there from the night of the 29th til tuesday evening.

Alright. Tuesday night we can work on getting every thing measured up and tacked into place and depending on how long it takes us to get it all laid out will determine how much i can get done tuesday night. But as long as i at least get it all tacked up right burning it in wont take to long just cant over work the welder because its duty cycle isnt the best :(

The arms get bolted to the plate and to the bottom of the motor mounts. The angle iron on the bottom of the plate is welded on. Right?

Yes the arms will get bolted to the plate and up to the motor mounts. Do me a favor if you can take a clear pic of what your motor mounts look like from the bottom so i can start coming up with ideas. the angle iron will be welded to the bottom. They will act as a strengthener and give you rails to slide on.
