Re: OEM Skid Plate Question
All ready to reap the benefits of super gas mileage, reduced wind noise and rock crawling extraordinaire (i.e. none of the above).
The threads were filled with gunk so a quick chase with an M8-1.25 tap cleaned them up, and a bit of anti-seize on the bolt threads, for posterity.
It has a tab which engages with the mid skid plate to help it cantilever rearward without deflecting under wind load. It is glass filled polypropylene, so should be reasonable durable against little things, like wind, or getting pushed on by tall grass.
