Re: 4XGUARD Front Skid...Installed

I'm starting to wonder if the front skid is really necessary.. I have never come close to smashing my front into anything. When I get my bumper, I might just dump it It does give the WK a nice mean look thought!

Re: 4XGUARD Front Skid...Installed

Just wanted to add to this: I JUST changed my oil for the 1st time since having the front skid on - I didnt have any issues at all. I had front ramps to get up on and had to wiggle the filter out, but it wasnt messy at all. For all those asking about oil changes with these nice front skids: you're all good, but might be easier with some frontside elevation, but it's all gravy I know Coop - new sig pic comsing soon man

Re: 4XGUARD Front Skid...Installed

So I was going to install mine today, then I couldn't find the hardware (I've had this thing for almost 2 years lol)

then I found something that might be the hardware, but the bag part number didn't match the instructions.

G100-10
20


Does that ring a bell? In the bag are 4 large bolts that seem to be the ones that bolt the skid to the brackets but none of the self-tappers are in there. Do you think it's a big deal if I only run one of the two front bracket bolts (per bracket)?

Hmm weird. You only need the 4 bolts n washers. And the 2 self tappers. I think that's it. You should be aight. As long as it's snug n tight. lemme know!!

Ps thanks marlin!

Re: 4XGUARD Front Skid...Installed

It was the right bag but since I couldn't find the self-tapping bolts, I just tapped the holes to a size bolt I did have. All's good in the hood
