How thick would you say the bash plate and gas tank skids are?

Is that a plate on the opposite side of the gas tank?

Are there any good Lift/jack points other than the pinch welds for emergency jack?

That is the frame for my 1970 Olds that I'm restoring. Body is in the next bay and I wanted to store the frame indoors and got one of my crazy thoughts and hung it from the ceiling. There is a steel beam in the garage attic and can lift any vehicle besides a van to full height and it's out of the way and dry until I get it blasted and powder coated.

The plate removed is the engine skid plate and I would say it's 12 gauge steel. I would guess it weighs at least 20lbs so more than for just show

I used the pinch welds for the factory jack, generally they work best unless you have a sub frame or full frame. That's the frame for my 70 Olds I'm restoring above the lift. The attic has steel beams so I used to block and tackles and hung it there. I can lift any veh. with the exception of say a larger SUV or van to full height and my frame is high and dry until I get it blasted and powder coated.

Next time I put it on the lift, probably next week I'll take more detailed pics and see. I just did a quick LOF and grabbed my phone for a few pics for anyone that was interested in seeing the undercarriage of a BS Badlands

Thanks,
I ask because I'm thinking of making my own using my splash guard as a template.
And some rock rails made of square tubing looks like an easy fit.

Just about to do the first LOF, 2.0 badlands. Figured I'd show some undercarriage photo's and bare metal parts that I will pant

Thanks! Wondering if the bash plates were substantial and now I know. Helpful! Out camping this weekend and a mouse built a nest under the hood overnight. Two more mice jumped off after I started my BS this morning, out in the hills. Wondering if the bash plates are a spot they will also try to nest in and if so, is there a possibility of fire? Thank you!
