    Anyone have experience with installing a Trans skid on a 4th Gen with the oem front skid? Does the front skid need to be removed first then attach the oem on top of the trans one? I loosened the bolts on the cross member on the oem to wedge the RCI in there, but it wouldn't go in there.

    TRANSmission or TRANSfer case? I have RCIs full lineup so i can take pics or something if needed... Transmission plate should not need to have the engine plate removed as the stock plate shouldnt go back that far. Transfer case plate is two pieces as it replaces the stock cross member.

    Give some more details or pics of your setup and we'll get you set

    Correct stock engine skid is shorter than if you had an RCI engine skid. So no you would not loosen oem enginge skid and sandwich the transmission skid. RCI does have install guide on there web site, but only mentions as if you were installing with their engine skid. Shoot them a call.

    It's the trans skid, longer bolts are needed as longer ones come with the engine skid. Won't be purchasing engine skid until later this year
