if anyone has the dash off you should double check you dont need the fuel pump changed.

You can see it with a flashlight on top of the fuel pump.

If it has a 8 then it was supposed to be changed. take it to your dealer.


mine has a 10 :thumbsup:

Set rear spring to middle stiffness to try on these new ones. not sure if they changed anything in the last 2 yrs

my 2017 sled i always used highest setting and it worked good.

get one of these longer bolts at dealer to make it much easier to install this 1 bolt through bumper and skid. They have lots laying around from other jobs

Drill both support holes a bit bigger. different sleds can be tight and hard to install. this will make it easy to install no matter what

get the new support inside installed. leave bolts loose till you get all bolts in place

drill the skid plate hole to 5/16 ( the second hole down from front of the plate)

thats the hole for the longer bolt

bigger hole to get to the bumper support inside compartment


dont forget to drill the stock belly pan hole.

so long bolt goes through the bumper, skidplate, belly pan. Thats why its much easier with the longer bolt

hold the skid up and slip the bumper in place at same time. get the front bolt through bumper,skid,belly pan,support inside

tighten the bumper bolts, support bolts, 2 skid bolts

the 2 tight skid bolts will hold the skidplate up nice

the 5 self tappers are the last thing to do


push plate up and should be straight at the end

hold and screw the first 2 screws tight. I always finish the screws by hand so you dont strip the holes.

the last 3 screws install them at a little slight angle forward. tip of screw angled towards the front of sled. Theres a bolt boss inside you will hit if you just do them straight up.
