    I got the sliders & skids first and will get bumpers later because the bottom & sides are more likely to get hit on a trail.

    Why worry about a transmission or t-case getting broke open? more important to protect the front grille :D

    I went the opposite of you because i dont go on any trails were i would need to worry about a rock gouging the underside of my truck

    What size tires are you running? Do the new wheels have a different offset then the stock wheels?

    I have 265/70/17. Yes the offset is different. The offset set on these rims are 10, I'm not sure what stock rims are?
