Looks nifty(and heavy). My only issue is that bolt sticking out underneath the skidplate towards the back, it's a good canidate for getting sheared off on the first rock it lands on.

2004 Silver Jeep Wrangler

Winch, bumpers, rockers and other Jeep mods you 'yota folks won't understand.

These are his prototypes. He said they were making a few changes on the production plates. I mentioned the bolts to him as well. Hopefully the bolts will be recessed.

Great proto skid plate!
That bumper is one of the better ones I have seen for the FJ.

That is a Fab Four, the have it on the Ultimate FJ in the Petersen's 4Wheel Mag. I have an ARB, Demello makes a pretty nice one too, when we moved his shop I lifted a few and they are damn heavy. Landcruiser NW has one that doesn't look like anything I have ever seen.
