I will probably go with the EBC rotors. It may just be a seized caliper. I plan to do some investigating tomorrow. If it isn't pouring rain

The diff skid is a few weeks off or so since I didn't like the mounting system and am going a new direction. Waiting on parts and such now.

I will probably start a group buy tomorrow when I get the holes drilled and it is mounted. Otherwise everything fit as expected and it is good to go.

Definitely in the market for one. Low range has one for our trucks for 199.00. With shipping it runs about 240. How will your price compare to this. Also theirs uses the existing holes to mount. How will yours?

To me it's easier to set them with the leaf spring free from the axle and set the angle a little less than vertical. You'll get the best droop that way out of the springs.

Yeah I guess you could do it that way. I plan on shooting for a 40* shackle angle at ride height.

Got the skid plate mounted. I'm happy with it. Only very minor tweaks that I would like to make. It even fits over the stock skid for ease of install.




It mounts to the cross member in front of the skid plate.

These 2 factory holes need drill thru the top with a 1/2" hole. The middle small hole is already a thru hole, but I'm not using it.
