Man..i tell ya, my OME stabilizer [glow=red,2,300]was [/glow] nice and yellow at one point..but, now it looks like rusted swiss cheese!..dings, rust, bends..etc. Even though the yellow looks good..i would rather protect it.
Just a guess here but I will go with drop bracket form the radiator lower core support. not the best pic but I would guess apporx 4" drop from the core support or off the rail ends themselves would put you in the ball park. unfortunate side affect is someone might think you are running an ifs rig with that set up.
In 88 it was there for protection. To protect all the IFS stuff underneath it. I just checked out that whole rig on slee's site. It is FS. It appears that someone got crazy with mods and didn't wheel it at all. It is in great shape.
since we are on the skid-plate subject (somewhat) i saw this on a disco. Not endorsing the disco, but that looks like a killer skidplate for sliding down hills and rocks since the 80 does have a large arse end.
I gotta put in my .02
Skids like that are best left to the desert racers. And if you were really worried about your draglink I think the money would be better spent on making this work on an 80. http://www.ottindustries.com/fj80.htm
