    Didnt have any problem installing the front spacers but now I have 2 little square blocks 2 lock washers 2 flat washers and 2 bolts that im supposed to put in the rear skid plate. Ive looked, dry fitted, looked some more and I just cant figure out what to do with these. Instructions say something able some models ya might have to trim the rear skid plate. Not sure where and how much to trim and if I need to trim at all. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Yea I was wondering if it would be a big deal to leave them out. Guess ill just through those extra bolts and washers in the glove box for later use. Thanks for the quick response
