Default Re: Skid Plates !!

in your front skid plate would you be able to put some medium diameter holes in it to allow for some increased air flow to the radiator?

Yeah I could certainly do that, eithe by drilling them or doing it on a plasma table. If you wanted that I would just charge an additional $15.

Hey I have an extra front skid that I made for a body lifted truck that I will get rid of for $100. After making it I noticed that because of the increased angle to clear the BL'd bumper, the side wings just barely hit the edges of the radiator. It is an extremely easy fix to make it fit, you can A. grind just a little out of the wings on the skid, B. snip the extra unneccessary metal off the radiator bottom edge, or C. Shim the plate down about 1/4 of an inch from the mounting holes. PM me if you want it!

Haha sorry not right now! but actually, the only thing that makes that one "for a body lifted truck" is the fact that it fits tighter to the frame so it doesnt get in the way of the bumper. But by all means it would work on any truck.
