Well after some pounding on the underside of my rig Memorial day weekend my aluminum skids have some new bends in them. The support bar bent similair to Athenas almost in the same manner. I also recieved some good dimples as the result of some hard pounding on the Catskill granite ledges. I had a spotter that had no reguard for my rig. I believe the phrase was "You're going to have to hit it hard to clear it." They did their job but definitely aren't as pretty as they were. I'll post some pics when I can catch some daylight. If anyone can give me an approximation(in inches) that they are supposed to be from the T-case I can confirm they amount of deflection.
