Well I'm going to be making a skid plate for my truck and was wondering if anyone had the dimensions of the stock one. I do not have my truck and will not have it for most the week so If you could help me out it would be greatly apperciated.

I'm going to be making it out of 3/16 thick Aluminium.

mine is probably going to be no where near as nice as bubaloos but I can always try. I'm also going to make a pedal relocator because I do not feel like spending $200 on one.

Because its a pain to accelerate with my left leg all the way to the right. That way the pedal will be left of the brake and a lot eaiser on longer drives

I had my right leg amputated. I had bone cancer so they amputated it below the knee and I was able to drive with my prosthetic, about a year after that I got hit by a drunk driver and had to have it amputated above the knee so I can no longer accelerate with my right leg.
