Is it wrong of me to want to bedline a 1" strip down the edge of each of my doors so that next time I'm in a parking lot and the idiot beside me hits my X with their door :cussing: I can swing mine open and hit them back without scratching my door?

Yeah, the sliders aren't quite high enough to stop doors.
So far only the gas tank is doubled up and I haven't been on a trail yet to test it. It hasn't fallen off and isn't making any noises so I would say so far good. Will have to wait for a trail drive before I know for sure.

that's good to know, if you know anybody that wants to do the whole double up thing I still have that OEM front skid available here in moose jaw.

I'll keep my ears open and point them your way if I do hear of anyone wanting one.

I actually have a second Hefty radiator skid, only problem is the hatch for the oil filter was put on the wrong side so they replaced it for me (cheaper than shipping it back to be fixed) with a new skid but I now have an OEM skid and an after market one cluttering up my storage locker.
