OK, with all these comments about the front and diff skid overlap at the mounting point, I went to the garage this morning, loosening the bolts at the rear of the diff skid, and removed the front skid entirely. Then I loosened the OEM plate that includes the mounting nuts for the two front skids, and found the plate could be moved back a little better than 1/16" (the mounting holes are slightly oversize). This allowed the diff skid to move back a similar amount, so it now clears the OEM plate's mounting bolt heads that I mentioned in my earlier post. In the photo below, you can see my front skid now overlaps the diff skid, and certainly does look better, especially with the lighter aluminum finish. That OEM plate has a tight roll just aft of the cross member, with the diff skid wrapping tightly around that roll, and limiting it's movement but adding strength.

So i went to get my skids on today and found that the oil drain plug access panel on the diff. skid don't line up on my diesel. Long story short I bought these end of last year and never installed but i messaged James to see if there was a design change or some thing.

I wasn't expecting a response till Monday but James called me back (on Saturday 😳) and we found out that that i had the Gas skid rather than the Diesel skid. Without even asking he offered to send me the proper skid 😀

This is way above and beyond as i was just expecting after all this time that would have to "deal with it", not that it wouldn't work just be a bit annoying. Can not be happier i'm using these with customer support like this.

Many thanks James 👍
