    Here's long shot:
    Any idea where to find original Rasta Aluminum skid plate dimensions and angles? Or better yet, how to go about reshaping/bending the front skid?

    Mine are steel, but I have employed the use of a big sledge hammer to reshape. Other times I've placed wood under key positions and driven over them.

    Hi there sonof40, try Contra Costa Metal Fabricators in Concord, they have the equipment to do just what you are looking for.
