    Caused by diff drops and incompetent shops. Don't run a diff drop and its not even a concern. You can run a diff drop and pro plate as well but it makes contact with the mounts. So if you bash the plate, it bashes the diff upwards.

    I don’t run a Diff Drop. I have an Elka 2.5 IFP lift with DK UCA’s.

    I have an Icon RXT w/overload and 1” of my lift is tire height. 3.5” is the suspension.

    I get off road a bit but my baby does not rock crawl so to speak so washouts and off camber fun is the only times things get funky.

    save to say once I get sliders on I’ll likely trip into more “fun”.

    Sounds good to me. I’m not super familiar with Ironman products so I can’t speak to them.

    A suspension lift has no effect on how the skid plate is mounted. If you want one in there just bolt it on and go about your business.
