need help now please! trying to finish!

hey guys, trying to put my stock skid plate back on. Should i have to jack it up to get it back on or do i have it backwards?

The bolts are going in but it looks like its raising the transmission too? How should i reinstall it?

THANK YOU, really wanna drive it tomorrow!

Are your studs for tcase mount through the skid? You should have had your transmission supported at the bell housing while the skid was off. If you didn't then it probably lowered so your fine then.

thanks golden, yes when the skid was off it was supported by the bell housing. The 4 nuts are on but when i bolt the frame bolts in, it lifts up the transmission.

Like I had the skid on a hydraulic jack and was supported by that while i was trying to get it on. I then put the bolts in the right side frame and went to do the left and couldnt without jacking the skid up more.

Well if your holes are lined up then it should be right. Uh I'm gona see if I have a pic of the skid so I can tell you front fro back. But as long as the holes line up and the tcase mount is through and started te bolts then you should be fine.

The front is in the bottom of the pic. As you can see there is a slight taper.
