There are bolt-on lca skids out there, but they hang lower and cost considerably more. I searched around
for companies that sold the weld-on types. I went with Currie's 3/16" skids.
After test fitting them, I found they made unwanted contact with the lower control arm. Some TJ's have lower
control arm joints that protrude below the mount and some do not (mine did). I also believe Currie's skids
are geared more towards aftermarket control arms. This is good because they fit closer and tighter to
the mount, thus 'boxing" it in and making it stronger. However, since I still run stock lca's (that protruded),
I was going to have to remove some of that extra metal. My trusty dremel and a few cut-off discs made short work of
|before & after trimming
The rest was just a matter of spray painting the backs (to combat rust), having them welded on, then hitting the fronts
with some spray paint as well.
