after all my looking around i had settled on the shrockworks tank skid but i ended up with the trailtough instead. they are both essentially the same design and for the same price the trailtough model is already finished and it probable will never make a difference but there is less material cut out for the logo which should make it a little stronger. honestly the mounts will fail long before that is a factor but whatever. it matches my frame hugger plate. still waiting on the shrockworks bumper. that will narrow the list to:
fix locker problem
build new rear shackles
possibly a doorless mod and i definatly need a battery tie down.
all this stuff shouldn't be too expensive.
