    Stock skid relies on the two braces for strength. Effectively it's just a cover to prevent the front diff mount from catching on obstacles, which would otherwise ram the front diff into the engine block.

    Why are you running 30s? Stock size is 31".

    30.6" according to Tire Rack specs provided by Goodyear: https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tire...idewall=Blackwall&partnum=67TR6WATA&tab=Specs

    Rounded to nearest whole number is 31". There's enough diameter variation from inflation pressure and wheel width that nobody counts fractional inches. And of course the tire flattens a bit with weight on it.

    30.5, 30" 1/2, 30.6" :duh:

    glad to know my tire size increased from a theoretical 30" to a theoretical 31" with little to no modification! OFFROAD GUYS ARE FURIOUS WITH THIS ONE EASY TRICK!:rofl:

    anyways, i just stuck with 30" for some time as some people have went out of their way to mention 32.5" vs 33" or 34.25" vs 35" or the sort
    Thanks for the clarification on that matter!


    also since we last chatted, most places seem to sell skid plates in 3 parts; Engine, Transmission, Transfer case.
    Ideally it would be best to get all 3 and have them bolted in, I'm assuming the priority is at least eh t-case and trans as they sit lower?
    Just wondering since i had been eyeing the RCI stuff (I've not heard anything bad from them but if anyone has a set of skids or recommend someone else, just say) and noticed that if i get the t-case plate, they have an option for the exhaust re-route - worth doing the re-route (since it hangs lower than my left nut) before picking a set of skids? I don't think i'll be doing any crazy off roading till the spring, so i got some time to decide.

    also, are there any other skids that should be taken into consideration, like rear diff, fuel tank, lower control arms? or is that generally overland overkill?

    You should get IFS/front skid first to protect your oil pan and stock jack point from getting bent. Then transmission skid, and t-case is optional imho. I don't have it and my t-case holding up fine, crawl under and check that little skid that's bolted to t-case, it's thick enough to take on abuse. Plus your exhaust pipe will take a hit first if anything.

    Or you can get all set, but then why stop, get a diff skid, gas tank skid become heavy af and hit the malls after! lol :duh:

    I am with steel bumper, winch, ifs steel skid, aluminum transimssion skid and 35s already at 5300 lbs with full tank of gas. This trucks are easy to overload. :annoyed:

    Build thread lists all the things :D
    I say put skid plates on all the things.

    But that is just me, for some reason I LOVE the way it looks with armor all over the underside of my rig.

    I have Total Chaos LCA skids. @SDHQ OFFROAD ABS sensor skids. Marlin crawler rear locker actuator skid. More protection the better :cookiemonster:
