Front bumper brackets are a HUGE PITA! You have to cut open the front uniframe and do some serious surgery to get good strong mounts on ZJ's or WJ's. Because of this, you probably won't see anyone selling DIY mounts for them. They become way too much hassle for what they are worth.

Does the gas tank skid happen to fit ZJ gas tanks? I've noticed that some gas tank skids say they work on all ZJs and 97+ XJs.

Do you have any need for an XJ with a BDS long arm kit for testing? I can bring mine out to you and leave it there for a while. It's been parked since the beginning of May and I'm broke so I won't be using it any time soon.

Brian, I'd be more than willing to let you guys take my ZJ for a few months for prototyping (that is, if you had any interest in getting into the ZJ world)....course it's still lacking an engine but if you can get it down there you're more than willing

Well, our steel company stood us up on more 3/16 sheet, so we were forced to work on something else. This morning a gentleman called and asked about winch craddles, so we put this bad boy together. NyxerRsixxer design.

Forgive my ignorance, but is that a winch mount that drops into a 2" receiver?

My 4-door JK is in desperate need of armor. Your bumpers will probably be my next purchase though.

Well we finally finished up the gas tank skid for the 84-96' Jeep Cherokee. It is going to be a PITA to work with hitches. With the steel tank, it just does not leave enough room for the 3/16" thick sides. So we will have to sell these with the understanding that your hitch might need some modifying to fit with the skid. I'll post pictures of it when Daryl gets done welding it up. We should be able to both gas tank skids up on our website tonight.
