    I've now had my Toy for about three months, and have managed to get it buried in deep snow drifts three times. The first time, after an hour of shoveling, when I backed out, the (2nd?) skid plate (it attaches under the farthest one forward) ripped out of a few bolt holes, and did a little crumple job. I sorta straightened it out, and wired it back up, figuring I'd do a real fix when it wasn't ten below zero. Last night, I got buried again, and when I got pulled out, the wiring broke, and the plate is pretty much totaled at this point. Any recommendations as far as replacement skid plates for the whole truck? I'm not probably ever going to deal with rocks, but logs, stumps, ice, mud and hardpack snow are a weekly possibility. Thanks for your help in advance!
