I have the eimkeith. Also the PHK. I think that’s what it’s called. Really helped in stabilizing the runner after the lift.

I'm running a PCK

I'm also fully skidded which is why I'm considering lower shock and trailing arm armor

The Doc brothers are working on a driveshaft tunnel, I'm told

Trailing arm reinforcement, I'd get. I banged the shit out of my lower link mounts at the frame and we had to cut them off and put new ones on. Unless you're gonna be banging around in the big rocks I wouldn't worry about the lower shock. Although I also bent one of those too. Haha.

well upgrade your gas tank skid folks...lest you end up on Fordyce draining gallons of expensive fuel and killing your battery winching with a fuel less motor.

Ouch. Couldn't get it plugged or too big of a hole? I carry epoxy putty and liquid epoxy. Gas skid was also something I upgraded before I started crawling and I've used it many a time.

Yep, gas tank skid was the second armor I got after sliders. A big dent in the stock tank skid was a close enough call to make that the next logical priority for me.

I was out last week in a wash by myself. I crawled over so good size rocks and heard the screeching of stock has can skid plate. I remember saying “nope!” Out loudly. Luckily I was blue to back my way out with only some scratches.

Big enough that I was sticking rags in the hole to slow how fast it was draining so I could turn the rig around and run dry trying to get as close to trail head as possible. I'm swapping tanks tomorrow. I'll grab a photo...
