Funny, I did mine today. You will need to buy 4 2" washers with a 3/8" ID to retain the the plastic cover.

CAN NOT DO THAT, THATS THE MOST IMPORTANT MOD. I take the squirters and point them outward, so they spray perpendicular to the car. That way when someone pisses me off i can squirt them. Got to have that feature. I will gladly take that weight.

I agree but weight is weight. It is kinda free weight at this point. Do not worry will get in the cab and front end stuff soon. Just bored and needed something to do. Shops kinda dead. Also the 2 new batteries in the trunk will help. PS It wont be to bad when you see what else I am putting back there.......

Highly suggest putting that skid plate back on or getting a lightweight one. You crack that aluminum oil pan and you'll be in for quite the repair bill. Not worth the risk.

1. Bought car and did not have one.
2. Stock height.
3. I am looking for a light weight alternative and or used.
4. I agree it should have something.

Stock height is better than lowered but won't help if debris kicks up from the road and punches a hole in it (yes it's happened).

I agree. When I find something used or low price, I will get one.
