I'm in the process of installing my skid plate but was not sure if there is supposed to be such a big gap between the bumper and skid plate. I would imagine there should be no gap! The skid plate is just loosely bolted on. Here are some pics so let me know if this is correct?

Brewie, I sent you an email but couldn't send pictures.

My guess is the Skids are made to work with ARBs or other bumpers that would sit lower. Only Guessing here. Or get a really big hammer and make it more snug.

Can't really tell very much from that angle? And not being tight could be another issue. Typically on the stock bumper there is two finger gap. These where designed to fit with aftermarket bumpers... Post better pics

Yes there is a two finger gap!

I wish I would have know that they were designed for aftermarket bumpers. On the first page it says it fits a stock bumper and I guess it does just not as tight as I was hoping for

That gap also lets air flow into the engine bay which is a good thing.

You can see in this picture that the skid plate sits tight up against the frame rails! I wonder if he customized the brackets somehow?

FYI - that picture of the red truck is taken from a completely different angle. Parallax.

Brewie, Thank you for the offer. I really do like the skid plate and want to have it on my 90.

I will look at the brackets and see if I can get a tighter fit somehow!!!! I just thought I would ask first if I had installed it wrong or if there could be a simple solution.

Diego, can you post pictures and let us know what you did to get the skid plate to bolt to your front bumper?
