    Got the idea after seeing Kristians (LSTForums.com) conversion, it looks great and it looks ultra heavy duty. I really hate fighting those cheap ass small screws in the skid plates, they load up with dirt way too easily and if you don't clear them out completely before trying to pull them out you run the risk of stripping them fairly quickly which I've done a few times.

    Anyhow, thanks again for referencing the bolts you used Kristian. :)

    Photo that got me intrigued to do the mod....

    So I totally ruined a frame rail on my very first hole on accident, LOL. Ordered another set of frame rails, I will be more careful and take my time next go around. This fresh high speed carbine bit goes through this plastic epicly fast, haha.

    I run the stainless screw kit in my summit since it sees water and mud often best upgrade I have done, makes working on it WAY easier since I'm not drilling out cheap stripped out screws

    I don't have a lot of good pix but it turned out great, and I LOOOOOVE it. Just have to remember to swap out and screws that are having the heads chewed off before there's no more head left to put the allen wrench in to, lol. The screws essentially become the new skid plate since they aren't flush with the plate like the stock screws.
