    Howdy all,

    I dont know what the 'correct' title of this item is called but we will go with Skid Plate until corrected. = )

    I got my truck back from the Alignment shop and they didnt put back on the skid plate. I thought it would be a fairly simple easy installation but had some questions about the gap. Is this correct? You can see that the front part is simple to install but the 2nd part that connects to the first part and the cross member is a little different. Here are some images. Is this correct?

    Yeah looks more or less correct. I can't beleive how "clean" you truck is under there. Either you scrub it clean all the time or it has never seen mud. :D

    Actually, I just changed out most of the front end. New Lower Control Arm, Knuckle, Spindle, Upright, Struts, Bearings, Ball Joints etc. I figured if you got it all apart, you might as well clean it a bit. = ) Anal huh? LOL

    = ) Its nice when things are clean.

    nothing, all stock expect got a OE replacement air filter K&N.
    looks correct. the part where you're pointing finger to, you can leave it like that as long it stays intact with the front skid plate.
