why wouldn't the skid plate off a 4 door fit your 2 door? they're the same frame/etc. under there.

honestly never looked under a 4 door, that just what the guy told me. and i didnt know i needed brackets so i assumed it was something to do with the differences in the two vehicles.

Last time I checked 2 doors and 4 doors were the same from the drivers seat forward. There were some minor differences in the years but its nothing you can't make work easily.

sorry brother, i kinda dropped the ball last night. it hit me this morning just after 6, while i was on my way into work.

if your truck never had the complete skid plate package on it originally, you probably don't have the brackets on the lower front diff mounts, which is where the side of the skid plate bolts to.

last i checked, these were still available @ GM.

i made mine out of 1/4 inch galvanized steel L brackets I bought at menards for $3 each. Already had the holes & everything just had to trim them down.
