Hey @dirtstar2002 what's up with the gap between bumper and skid plate? I purchased bumper first and just installed skid plate. Would have been nice if it tucked up under the bumper.

From the launch videos it looks like it does

Skid plates look like different sizes and design from their image vs yours. The top left (passenger) of the skid, there is a triangle brace and yours has some rectangle like thing. Makes it look like there's a body lift gap thing when there isn't.

Yea exactly. The front lip that tucks into bumper also looks longer. Pretty disappointing. Going to try and call customer service but good luck

Did you maybe mountt he brackets backwards? Causing the gap? Can you turn the brackets 180 and reinstall?

Watching because out of all the designs we’ve seen I may like theirs the best (even better than the premium ADD). I bought the rear bumper from 4WP, but it hasn’t been delivered yet. Nice, high clearance design to just outside the body width.

I’ll look into what happened there. I agree. That’s a strange departure from the original designs. If I had to take a guess, someone up high told us it had to fit multiple ford bumpers too.
