Tools need to remove the Skid Plate from a Trailhawk:
10 mm socket, 13 mm socket and a t-30 torx bit (Bumper cover to Skid bolts)

Tip for skidplate: remove all bolts but one of the most rearward ones, there are two of them. The rear ones, the holes are slotted in the skidplate. Loosen that one bolt just about all the way. Slide the skid forward from under that bolt head, then back from out from above the bumper cover. To install, slide the skid above the bumper cover, then the slot back to that one rear bolt. It will stay in place to get all the other bolts started.

Thank You Rammer
Easy enough for one person, no need for help (extra hands, blocks, floor jack, ect.).

Take it to my local Moss Brothers Dealership for a lifetime free oil change.

Agreed. I changed oil on my Trailhawk last night and I had to use my legs to steady while I put the bolts in. I'm 5'6" 140, so it was ok for me - plenty of wiggle room. Hand tighten a 13mm and a 10mm on the left side. Slide the plate in and hand tighten a 13mm and a 10mm on the right side. Everything else falls into place. I used Valvoline and Fram Ultra XG10060.

I didn't see this in the DIY section that we have. Can we get this added to the DIY?
