    I am trying to find a transfer case skid plate for my 71. I've been all over the web but can find nothing but Jeep Parts. UGH!

    mine has the dual Xmember. It looks like two of the supports that your trany mounts two, one in front and one in back and then connected buy a plate running under the xfercase. I have seen this on many dif rigs so I'm sure you could A)get another trany Xmember and make your own or B) find a dual setup at a Junkyard or donor rig. Good luck....

    Thanks for the info. I would probably burn my garage down if I broke out the welder, but I took the weld advice. I drove my rig over to my friendly neighborhood metal fab shop. and they said they would make me 2 plates to bolt to my dual crossmember for $75.

    Alot cheaper than a burnt down garage!

    Thanks!

    That sounds like a pretty good price if its good thick metal and good custom work. Shops around here would gouge the hell out of you.
