Rusy's radius arms with skid plates?

I'm about to install a set of rustys first generation radius arms. I'm going to be running 35's with a lot more down travel than up travel. There for I will not have a ton of ground clearance so i'm trying to figure out what skid plate system will work with that cross member and set up. Up front i'm running a dana 30 hp trussed and locked with a solid diff cover. Then currie y link steering with a iron man andy aluminum tie rod with iron man andy track bar system (track bar, bracket and brace), and a steering box brace from quadratic. In the rear i have an 8.25 29 spline locked with a solid diff cover. Then a tomken gas tank skid plate.

The two skid plates i'm looking at tomken engine/tranny skid plate and their transfer case skid that goes frame rail to frame rail?
Does anyone have any experience with these or others with a cross member similar to the rustys?

You won't get much forward of the front of the transfer case.

I'm confused by what you meant. Are you talking about finding skids for the tranny?

You won't find much to purchase. If you get really creative you could get something built off the block engine mounts but it wouldn't be very wide. You would have to deal with exhaust, driveshaft, and radius arms

Yeah that's my concern. My bracing is what concerns me with the tomken engine/tranny skid. Picture of the skid below
