Skid plate problem

I was driving 70 mph down the highway and the front skid plate came lose. The Front two bolt holding the skid plate had come out, and the front of the skid plate dropped to the road. Had to remove the plate to get home. Visit scheduled with the dealer. 12000 miles on the odometer. If you do your own maintenance you might want to check the bolts.

Re: Skid plate problem

I discovered 15 lose bolts under the truck while i was developing the DEF injector plate...

Pretty lame. My guess is that they had a standard tq rating across the whole board and didnt take the vibration of diesel motor into account .. Blue Locktite is our friend
