Added these to my existing RCI skid plates. You do have to remove the transmission plate, line up the cat guard wings properly, then mark the holes, measure again, punch a spot, drill a pilot hole and then drill the final hole. Sounds like a lot but not really. My assembly went smoothly although I was cautious if not confused at first which wing went on which side. Finally got it.
Once the wings are on, the new trans plate with wings is heavy! Get help reinstalling the new assembly.
Now – once these are back on the truck, you will very happy you added the wings. You cannot see key alone try to remove the cats!
I’m super please with the entire front to tank skid plates on my truck.

Excellent product, i had a coworker recently have their catalytic converters stollen in a parking lot. I looked online and stumbled on these and had to order them. The quality and finish is great as well as the added value of protection. Do yourself a favor, look into the cost of the catalytic converters themselves and you will see how this is definitely a must. 5 stars for a great product!
