    Should be able to pick it uip from the paint shop today!!!!! Can't wait!!!!

    Appreciate the kind words.
    Couldn't you hold the front of the skid plate back far enough so as not to restrict the air flow? Or you could always do what we did with our 4x4 trucks back in the 70's and put several holes in the front to allow for air and put some heavy expanded metal behind them to keep small sticks or rocks from coming through? There is usually a way to keep air from being restricted to the point where it will cause problems with enough thought. If I were there I could probably figure it out.
