Do any modifications need to be made to install these plates?
Once lifted 03 Trailblazer on 35's, gave it up to travel the USA with my family.

As far as I know you dont have to make any at all. I ordered mine but have to wait till I am back from the desert to pick them up and install them.

Unless you want bolt head protectors, they are bolt in. Mike will weld the protectors on for you for a small fee.

Actually, I take that back... You'll need to cut some of the front part of the inner fender plastic for a bumper... Though you need to do that if you're rolling with just the stock impact bar, anyway...

I imagine you could throw that skid on a camp fire and cook some bacon on it though :-)

One of only two Trailblazer/Envoy oil pan skid plates to ever run the Rubicon Trail. Historic, and may never be repeated without a SAS truck.

Wish I was closer to play on the rubicon
I hate to advocate weird chemicals, alcohol, violence or insanity to anyone...but
they've always worked for me.

Roadie, did you have the front receiver hitch on your TB then?

No, that was after I traded him the hitch for the skids...

God no. That was an expensive, but short-lived experiment before I had my bumper made. Everything I did in the first 3-4 years seemed to be an expensive, but short-lived experiment. But every item was well-loved and well-used and got me some functionality I needed for learning and growing experience. If I jumped straight from stock to the current Roadiemobile with currently available mods, I wouldn't have been able to drive it safely on the trails I can walk through now.

I mean, just LOOK at this insane noob, about an hour before he got into the most EPIC mud stuck: What was he (I) THINKING!?!?!??!?!?
