Differential Drop kit/ bud builts

Question for all you 1st gens running bud builts.

Would adding a 1" differential drop kit work if I had bud built skid plates?

Thanks, need to help my cv angles a bit.

I asked 45acp the same question and I think he answered for you as well.

I'm going BudBuilt, buying the front skid in May. Haven't decided on black powdercoat or stainless.

My thought on that is go stainless and paint it yourself. I've beat mine up a bit and just spray it with some satin black rustolem. Simple touch up.

When did they start offering stainless? Also, I know you said you're going bare metal, good choice, because if you went with powdercoat you won't able to just touch it up when it gets scraped up.

I went with skid row plates and took my diff drop off. I do think that the buds work with a diff drop. I will say that I notice nothing different now that I took the diff drop off.

I've considered going back to stock as well. I should've done some before/after measurements to see if it actually did anything.
