Brizzzey, thanks for the great photos. I really like what you have done with your CT; you've gone in the opposite direction (up) from me (lowered). So cool to see how different members approach making their CTs truly their own.
Regading skid plate, sounds like a "must" for what you do.I would say either modify the one you found (welding closed unused mounting holes, drilling mounting holes where you need them, etc.) or fab one up from poster board, take that template to a fab shop and have them make one for you. Powder coat or POR 15 should protect it well.
As for the light bar, I'd go for mounting where it gives you the most benefit when you're on the trail, as I don't think you'll use it on the street and it should look good up top.
Really like the updates and what you've done to your car.
