What could you do with the gap between the front skid plate and bumer?

Also I finished up my BL yesterday (;

Ok on the 98-00 yes there is a gap. Ok look at the side mounts of the skid plate. It's bent at 90deg then mounts to the bottom side of the frame. Measure how much you need to raise the skid plate at the bumper gap. Then go to the side of the skid plate. Measure down from the 90deg bend. Make a line on either side. Remove the skid plate. Take out the current 90deg bend and make it flat. Now rebend the skid plate at your new bend line. Drill 2 new holes and mount it back up. You can cut off the excess also that's hanging over if you like.

Keep reading you drill them out to install the nut you took off. Plus no need to have the middle of the washer threaded and also have a nut. It's all good.
