I have aftermarket exhaust: Corsa. I had to tilt and lean the skids to get the center bolt tangs behind the pipes... preventing a straight up lift & align.
As previously mentioned, trimming of the plastic fuel line shield is required to fit around Left (Drivers) Side Skid.
Other than that... the Tank Skids were no problem to mount.
I'm confused. You put the fuel tank straps around your skid plate. When I installed mine, I put the skid over everything.
Also, when trimming the fuel line shield, did it fit with the Transfer case Skid as well?
