Skid Row and Diff drop ?

Gents,
Does anyone have experience with Skid Row plates and a diff drop? I have read in a couple forums that the skid plate doesnt work with Diff Drops and in others just needs a spacer to work with the Diff drop. Does anyone have any personal experience with this set-up? I would like to keep the diff Drop if possible. Skids are on the way this week so I want to be ready. Thanks in advance!

Just add a spacer. I believe when I did my diff drop the spacers came with it and I used them on my Skid Row plates. I used silicone glue to hold them in place for when I pull the plates off. Put the glue on after they are installed.

Diff drops don't do anything. Besides drain your money. All they do is rotate the diff slightly, making shit worse.

Thanks for the info, my Taco came with the diff drop already installed. When I get coil overs, I will get rid of it.

They are bad for both trucks, more so worse for 2nd gen no doubt. But they still do the same thing for both trucks. They just aren't worth the headache you will get when something gets ruined
