I just installed the full chassis skid and swing arm skid. I ran into some problems and thought I would share them.

1. The top mount on the full chassis skid. The bolt holes were to small. I had to hone the holes out with a 5/16 drill bit.

2. Swingarm skid. PRM supplies you with two recessed bolts and you are suppose to use your other two OEM bolts to bolt the skid on. The problem with this is the OEM bolts are too short. I had to go to home depot and get new bolts.
Here is the pics and the bolt size. Bolt 8x1.25 ---30 mm long.
Maybe you guys will have better luck.

I had the same problem you did. I went to homedepot to get new bolts too. It was 9 something at night and the 2 bolts were too short. And then the belly pan they wanted youto use the little screws which are a bit tiny for my skids.

I didint like the pipe clamps and I tell you what my skids Hum bad.

Yea those pipe clamps are crazy!!! They should have came up with something else the rear of the skid.
