Have not been able to find any write ups on guys installing clayton's engine skid on the 4 cylinder. I'm in the middle of building up a new frame and I'll be running a clayton long arm setup. I figured since the skid plate is a structural member I should go with something I won't have to cut which leads me to picking up the clayton belly and engine skid this morning. Has anyone on here mocked one up before? Looking for advice before I dive into fabricating something.

Never heard of them before.  Looks like a copy of the Skid Row skid.  Clayton doesn't seem to list a 2.5L skid on their site.  I was only able to find the 4.0L which won't work since they use the motor mounts as mounting points which are different between the two engines.  You might be able to unbolt the front mount and drill new holes further back and remount it though.
