M.O.R.E. Skid plates showed up today so I dove right in!
I did notice with the winch, bumper and skids I have lost about 1/2 or so more of height in the front so I may add a spacer eventually to get some of the lost height back.

Had a few free hours so I put the teraflex spacers on and the rustys lower spring isolators since mine already were not liking the weight.
