Question T-18 Flat Belly skid Pan CJ...Ideas??

I recently installed a Ford T-18 trans using the Novak adapter to mate up to the 300. I was able to clock my T-case flat and want to run a flat belly skid pan. I'm looking for some ideas and also, how far you spaced down for the belly skid.
Thanks

Make a crossmember that hardmounts to the T-18 first, then using two bushings, mount that to the inside of the frame. Keep it flush or higher then the bottom of the frame rails, this should not be too hard to do.

Now using your existing skid plate holes get a piece of huge cardboard and make a skid plate template and just cut out a hole for the belly of the T-18. Cut it out, re-inforce the shit out of it with tubing, make the little drop piece to protect the belly and bolt it up. The ones Ive seen personally had a drop of no more then 1" with the exception of the counter reduction gear belly that hangs a little lower and you can't do anything about.

I don't have anything readily available, as I sold my rig to take advantage of the housing market. But next time I see some of my old buddies I will be sure to take some pics. They all run SM465s but the idea is the same seeing as both trannies are similar. Ive seen pics in hardcore however that were very very similar.
