Read this over a few times ... and then go and search for a thread by IdahoDoug where he dissects the carnage of his brothers accident scene. It will open your eyes ...Romer said:It has to be a perfect and tight fit to provide stability and the safety you are looking for. Otherwise, it has potential to bend the frame when it has a slight impact.

What is that skidplate going to do? In IFS trucks they make the bumpers with plates to protect the front brackets. On a solid axle truck all you might be protecting is the drag link. However if you hit the draglink with a rock, you are not going anywhere forward since the diff will not clear either.PKP80 said:.... and a front skid plate would be nice.
