    I just bought a skid plate for my prerunner. Cool, right?...

    So i get it home, take the old one off and begin to install the replacement one three of the four screws go in perfect. The fourth one (front right) goes in at an ever so slight angle and i end up stripping the little welded on nut:mad:. Lame. Lame. Lame.

    Well im off to Home Depot to buy a tap. Well see how that works....

    I just love it when things work out.

    I got a 5/16ths tap and ran it through once and the bolt fit perfectly!. Shes on and looks awesome! :D:D:D

    Shes a mess right now:eek:. As soon as she gets a bath ill post some.

    I was thinking about getting a bull bar but i wasnt sure if I really wanted one. I have always liked the skid plate and it was half the price. So today while driving home from work, i made an impulse buy. I couldnt be happier.
