    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    I just jacked one side of the frame at the time and place a jack stand it's faster then removing the skid.

    yup, this.

    I generally take it off (the skid plate), when I change the oil, though.

    I just jack on the skid right below the cross member, it looks like it's bending but it pops back. Plus its a paper thin skid plate, it is going to bend one way or another.
