Stephen, if I can help out in any way, just ask, I'd be happy to help you out with your project. It's my skid plate that's featured in the post above and after building and selling them now for a few months I've learned quite a bit about building these things. I've made a few mistakes along the way as well as added some improvements. I have to add, that when I did need to rectify a problem with a skid plate, that the Strom owners are a very understanding group of individuals who had the patience to work with me to solve a problem. They're really a great group of people. So if you would like any tips or help that I've acquired from my experience, contact me.
