It spans under both crossmembers then folds up in the front with the superlift logo. Protects the diff I supposed.

Awesome skid.

If it were me though, I would drop these bolts in place of the ones you have now. I would just spot weld them so they dont spin when you take them off.

I can see the ones you have now catching on a rock and shearing right off.

Yeah yeah.... would've been a lot better but by the end of it we were both worn to hell and wasn't thinking like I should have been... id love to grind it off and redo it, but joe said it was good enough.
