I attempted to install all of the skid plates from primitive on my 19 2.5. I got the snow shield, front and mid. Ill work on the rear diff end of the week.

I had an incredibly difficult time installing the mid skid plate and was only able to get one of the 2 rear mounting points secured. I found the tolerances are incredibly tight and could not get the screw to catch one thread of the threaded mounting point .

I tried what felt like everything to get it to work. I mounted the passenger side and tried to get the driver side in. I then mounted the driver side and then tried mounting the passenger side. I tried switching from the oval cut outs to the smaller round ones.. Nothing worked to get both rear points mounted. Eventually I just mounted the two front points and then tried again using the other smaller silver screw they provided as an alternative.

Anybody experience this? Any tips you guys can offer to get this squared away?

I might just dremel it to wide the mounting hole on the plate.
