    So it turns out that the stock skid plates won't hold the weight of our trucks. At least not mine.

    I was driving on a washed out trail behind my house today and ever so slowly eased my front right tire into a washed out segment of the trail. It was just deep enough that the truck slid a bid on the skid plates. And damn it if those stock skid plates did deform under the weight. Too dark for pics, I'm afraid.

    Oh, well. The truck isn't quite one month old yet, but I guess it's never to early to start considering upgrades. Might have to take a drive over to All Pro.

    Update - pics:

    Whoops. Forgot. Pics posted.

    Not sure if you can tell. The skid plate isn't destroyed. But it did bend. Hmm.
