    Default Suburban Z71 skid plates

    Question on the Suburban Z71 pkg. skid plates?Will the skid plates have to be removed to do normal service like changing oil and filter plus checking fluid levels in the differentials and transfer case?

    as far as changing oil, no you dont have to remove it, transfer case, yes, front diff i believe so.

    Makes fluid changes cleaner if you remove them...

    Anyone have pics of these plates on the truck? I want better protection under the suburban, and want to see if the Z-71 had something beefier than a standard k1500 does...
    I like you.
