    Well here few photos

    Heavy duty plastic Window wells I bought 18'' and cut them down to 14''.

    Each fender has 2 brackets holding them on.

    It was fun fabbing them up and was very simple to do.

    Now the road slush will stay under the fenders and not on top of the skid.

    Sorry for the fuzzy photos they was from my dumb phone

    Why do you run the tires backwards?

    Looks effective overall

    Well on my old skid I used for side walks/ driveways when snow deep. I found out I had better traction with tires flip around on walks and driveways So I thought try it with this one.

    LOL I'll put that on my todo list .

    Next project for skid thinking mounting side mirrors on the lift arms

    Found some Jeep mirrors that can be mounted

    I am thinking all safety things it needs Since it will be at the biggest condos complex in my town, lots of parking spots to clean back dragging.


    I put last one on this morning Right front fender.

    A friend plows with a skid ask me build a set for his.

    We go to the junk yard and get rearview mirrors off of junkers. Then re-glue the mounting tab to the front window so that the driver just has to look up to see what's behind him.

    I have jeep mirrors coming but after looking at my rear view mirror I think if I put a second one inside on the left side inside . I think it should work .
    One I have on the right side inside the cab, I can see behind me and to rear side 6'' from skid rear fender. If I keep them inside they will stay clean.

    The picture may be deceiving, but the hoses look tight. Is there any extra in case the blade tilts down?
