Thanks for the good advice. is there any risk of overheating with the mid-skid covering and kind of enclosing the cats? Trying to decide on just the transfer case skid or get both to go with my (front) IFS skid.

I don't think there should be any, nor have I heard of any issues of heat buildup from the cats. They still have a couple inches of airspace around them

Can your mid and tcase skids work with allpro front ifs skid? I have their mid skid but like how yours are flush!

Edit - Nevermind, looking at the mounting holes they're deff in different places!

You could get the angle of the lip on the back to the t-case and I'm sure Eric could bend his mid to match. Then just drill new holes, he could send you one without holes, or you could measure your all pro hole pattern and he could probably cut the holes to match. Shouldn't be a difficult thing to do!

The one man without a floor jack method.

Step 1 Place IFS skid on creeper.


Step 2 Slide under truck.
Step 3 Lift front end & install two front bolts 1/2 way


Step 4 Block up rear end install middle & rear bolts.


Step 5 Finish by installing tranny & transfer skids & tighten all bolts
Step 6 Take it out & enjoy your new belly protection.

The round inner tab on the BAMF skid will need to be trimmed. Simple enough, just mark a straight line and cut it off

probably a stupid question, but any problem reaching the oil drain plug with the skids?

Nope that's accounted for on the v6 skids for sure, and to my knowledge the 4 banger as well.
