    Sorry I haven't had any updates with progress. Currently I still have just flat pieces cut out since I'm in my final semester of a RN program and working two jobs. Just missing the two final ingredients to finish, time and cash.

    Sorry my drawings don't help you out any for the 2nd Gen aleaddict. I can give you this for recommendation. Go to an appliance store and ask for the biggest card board boxes they'll give you. Then crawl around underneath and use the cardboard to make some initial mock ups. It didn't occur to me to do that until AFTER I had things cut out. I've found that I need to trim an edge on the middle (transmission) skid to keep my tires from rubbing it at full turn right now.

    I did template cuts on plywood couple months ago. Here are pics. These tempates for 2007 DC 4x4 with revtek differential drop kit. Diff drop kit changes the angles, bolt hole locations and plate size slightly when compared to the factory specs (non modified tundra). This is work in progress bolt hole locations might change slightly at the time of fitment. Design for the rear cross member support is still pending to hold the 4th skid plate. I will also incorporate small bends on side to smooth out the edges.

    Feedback is always welcome.
