    Found out from this mod weekend that the stock skid plates won't fit on the 5 lug :mad:

    Aftermarket, you'd have to find one designed for the 5 lug.

    Splash guards i think are to keep water from reaching the engine. they are attached to the skid plate. like this pic of one of beefed tacos skid plates with 3 splash guards to fit a 5 lug
