Ok I read about 30 posts out of the 200 something on the blues clues room and havn't found a straight answer.
I installed it yesterday and it fit like a glove, the only thing is it does contact the rear sway bar slightly. I don't know if this is a big issue or not. even if the rear sway failed whats the worst that could happen?? I dunno, Seems OK to me but please, any opinions?

just make sure the wing plates that hold the u-bolt to the axle aren't touching the rear brake line. if they are you can place some fuel line over the brake line.

I became so frustrated with this whole thing that I never tried to fit either of the two that I recieved.

I havn't even opened the box that the final version came in.

How much clearance did you lose with it installed? I may still bolt it up one of these days.

Rick, I still have my first one too. The 2nd one didn't fit all that well either, but used the handle from my hi-lift as leverage to bend the driver's side u-bolt leg outwards. After that, the skid fit around the yoke, and cleared the e-locker with ease.

Matt...if you don't mind a painted red skid plate, you can have my first one. You'll just need to bend the welded on u-bolt.

well width wise it isnt as high as the akles because it angles down instead of curves but from the bottom of the pumpkin at most a half inch. It doesn't bother me because I have already pinched my diff drain pug in place from the rocks, better than breakin it off I guess but I will have to use a vacuume tube from the top fill hole to evacuate my fluid when it's service time. I dont want to take a chance of busting the bottom plug loose and never gettin it in again.

I'll take it. Will you be at the Meet & Eat this weekend? Oh, and how much $?

Nope, can't make it to the M&E...gotta miss out on those luscious biscuits w/apple butter. :-\

BTW...you can HAVE the skid, no dinero. I wouldn't feel right since I already paid and got my final product. Although, some ammo cans if you still have some would be nice. ;)

Sweet, thanks! I've got plenty of ammo cans! Now, how can I get it from you?
