Skid plates are the best advice. Rubber might rip to easily and cause more harm than its worth

rubber is fine but u want to bolt it on the frunt bumper and hang down to the ground....try to find a old peice of convayer belt or something along those lines....the low side is ur friend in a event like this bc u prob aint got the 4.56 gears or so yet to get the wheels spining FAST......and rember always check ur dif and transfer case fluids after playin in mud(even if its thick and not soupy)

ok....but just like a 2-3 foot wide peice of ruber going off the bumper to the ground will help float the frunt end a lil in the mud and keep ur engin clean for the most part...just make sure all of ur bost tubes are good, tight, and secure and that u have a good air filter bc i dont think they make a mud/dirt/dust friendly turbo yet..and these mud bogs can be very adictive...i can rember building 4-5G motors and blowing them up just to build another motor to be ready to weeks later.....i wish i would have saved more money then blowing it playin in the mud....

if u have any questions feal free to IM me.....yahoo= southern_boy_9404 aim= powerstroakford and if u would like to talk send me a PM and il send u back my cell #

thanks for the help, i'm going to take your advice and bolt a piece that will hand down to ground...then i may just put another piece under my front of the motor to protect the radiator and such

well i was able to hang enough rubber under the motor compartment to keep most of the mud out of the bay...i gave the girlfriend the camera and said make sure to record my pass, well she forgot to turn it on so she missed it!!!! i wish i could have got some pics of the truck in action but it didn't work out...only took 4 hours of powerwashing the truck to get it almost clean again
