    Hey guys newish to the forums but have owned my 2015 Tundra for 3 years now and love it. The truck came with a 3/1 lift from toytec and I’m assuming it came with the diff drop kit. So after reading a bit seems like everyone had problems with the bolts not being long enough. In my case all my bolts were able to thread in and I was able to tighten everything down and but up to the frame. But after looking at it I noticed the skid plate is right up against the diff drop. So my question is will this be a problem or cause any issues? I don’t do any crazy off-roading but definitely take it on trails here in michigans upper peninsula. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!A35B4620-700D-4B5E-846C-C30C8C1C8152.jpg218546F4-5AC8-4483-97F4-7D4DCE1B94B6.jpgA35B4620-700D-4B5E-846C-C30C8C1C8152.jpg 218546F4-5AC8-4483-97F4-7D4DCE1B94B6.jpg A35B4620-700D-4B5E-846C-C30C8C1C8152.jpg

    Too many mods to come
    Shouldn’t be a problem. Mine was like that when I was mid travel and had zero issues. I’m more worried about the bolts not being long enough lol. How many turns did you get out of the bolt?

    I had the same problem. My spacers weren’t long enough so my rci skid plate hit and would make a loud sound with any articulation. I just stacked washers to make the spacers a little taller so my skid plate would clear and problem solved. No pictures of the end result.
