am I just being anal.....or do they sit in a vulnerable place???
I have FX4 skids under my truck....do those cover that area? I have been having back problems so I cant get under there to look if I wanna get back up. Just curious really. They look tough, but I used to race ATV's and stuff like that immediately got a 1/4" thick plate to protect it for woods races.....maybe I'm just too hard on stuff too!

Great looking setup.

I dont mean to your thread here for a sec, but I was wondering if I'll need the dual stabilizers if I only have a 2.5" lift?
