heavyzee will become famous soon enough
Default Installed my skid plates finally

i got a full set of skid plates from my 2010 qc 4x4 from craigs list for $20... deal of the century ehy???

so i went to put em on

1st you gota put on the cross member support...
well these holes ae not pre threaded, rather the bolts they give you are self tapping... major PITA to put in lots and lots of effort!!!



then the bolts going in the front 2 bolts are also not threaded.. ugh so much effort!!!!

so 8 bolts later and a sore wrist, we have a rear skid plate...

so on to the front plate

all 4 bolt holes also not tapped.... PITA!!! but got it on w/o issue
