Backing INTO my drive today, a guy coming down the street locked up his brakes and slid, jumped the curb and his rear end smacked my bumper


and turfed my yard


Real glad I decided to wait till spring to put the roll pan on.

I hate that especially when it's not your fault at least it wasn't the roll pan that would likely have ended in a new bed

Oh yes the roll pans look great, but I am in constant fear I'm going to get tagged. That and a fully welded in roll pan is not the cheapest of mods. When you install your roll pan I would recommend installing a hidden hitch at the same time to brace up the rear frame a little as the OEM cross member has to be removed. Good luck.

Some people absolutely lose their minds in the snow. They forget everything they've ever learned. I'm kinda glad we don't get it much here.

Keep in mind you have be careful when driving with a pan, especially if you are lowered. They can get snagged on all sorts of stuff. My daughter has a steep driveway and I have to approach it at a angle. A friend had his truck pulled onto a roll back and sure enough it got hung up. Also there is the problem of a secure tow point, if there is no hidden hitch. Just saying, it's a lot like a girl wearing a tight skirt, looks damn good but but there can be a problem leaping about.
I'm an advocate of fully welded pans as it allows you to modify the fit to a greater degree. I narrowed the gap between the pan and the tailgate on mine. But also dramatically increases any repair costs that maybe needed later.
