    hey ya'll. the skidplate on my truck is rusted to death and i was wondering if i can just remove it and what i would be risking by doing so. i dont do any real off roading and at this point its just in the way when i change my fluids. any thoughts?

    I didn't noticed mine was missing until after I had purchased my truck. I will replace it if I can find one for a reasonable price.

    96greengoblin not sure where you are located in michigan but you can have mine if you want to come pick it up. Just have to make sure I still have it, but its in good shape. I dont think it made it into the scrap dumpster yet. its off an 01 not sure if they are the same.

    Lmao.. No. So what does every car and chevy truck do then? Fucked completely? :rolleyes:

    Just do what you want. I see no absolute point in the skid plate on road. If you see a reason, by all means, put one on.
