no, they had a noise that they thought was coming from the tranny, and the tranny shop took it apart to find nothing wrong.............the sound was actually the dust sheild for the rear pinion yoke on the D44.........

I'm assuming the tube out the back is for oil drainage but to me it looks like it will be a nice place to snag a rock or log while in reverse. Why not just a hole in the skid?

Nice Job! Would like one for my 97 TJ. I have a auto trans and exhaust runs in front of oil pan. Skid could cover both oil pan and trans cover. If you are interested in doing one for me please P.M.

Thanks

I've got to agree, just a hole on your next one. Also, the front brace that can be seen looks a little weak, might use a tube there. Work looks good though. I might be interested in one that did the pan and tranny also.

I will have to look into the tube idea or maybe angle to strengthen the foward mount. Thanks for the comments guys
