Skid Plate Install

When we installed the skidplate/crossmember combo we found that the Atlas smacked the crossmember. We didn't want to lose valuable clearance by using spacers on the crossmember, or by notching it, so we decided to take the Atlas back out and re-index it one position higher. Once this was accomplished, it fit with no problem. However, our TJ has a 1-inch body lift, so if yours doesn't, some banging on the floor with a hammer for clearance might be required.
