K man it was just a question.

Finally got my skid plate installed! Haven't been able to put it to the test yet.


Also picked up some Quick Fist clamps, I think I am going to mount a shovel or axe in my bed

I dig that square tube mini-rack on the bed. Might have to copy it!

Yeah I saw those but didn't want to get into it initially. Since you opened the can........

Looks like they were made with a 110v welder running self shield flux core. In other words it was probably maxed out. And what is that? 1/4" and 5/8 or 3/4"? On a 110v you are out of your league with that thick a material. Didn't even bother to weld the top and bottom??

I know I'll probably hear "well it didn't break when I hit it with a hammer" or "well it has worked so far". Great, good for you. But, I would never try to pull you out or let you pull me out with those. I like my windshield/life too much.

Good try but wont do much if you have a "T joint" like what he did with his recovery thingamajigs. With a T you assentially have a V already so to bevel it will do nothing for you.

The big issue is a 110v just doesn't have the stones needed to weld, arguably, even 1/4 inch.

About the only thing you can do to help is heat the metal up to damn near red hot and then weld it.

That was a 220V welder. And they have held up so far, pulled a full size expidition out and played tugg of war with a concrete pillar and the welds havent broke yet.

Anyways got my clamps installed:


Hertz just stay out of my thread if you have nothing good to say.
