Skid plate's on

Bought a nice M.O.R.E. oil pan/transmission skid plate -- and quickly realized this wasn't going to be easy to install on my back in my garage. The garage around the corner (Integrity) had a sign up they install lift kits, so I asked them to install it.

And I also got a heavy duty cross member for the transmission; when I crawled under for an oil change realized it had been beaten to shit and probably couldn't mount the new skid to it o_O

Next spring I'll work on upgrading the fairly thin factory skids on the transfer case and gas tank with the M.O.R.E. skids. (For comparison, the Mopar transfer case skid is a bit under 15#, the M.O.R.E. is 27#.)
