Q Matt • 07/13/2020, 5:28:46 AM Does this product work on a manual transmission truck? I have a 16 Double cab, short bed 6 speed manual truck, and I have noticed some products are not compatible with both manual and auto truck frames, mainly I have another brand sliders that were supposed to bolt up to the trans cross member but were 3-4 inches off. So I want to make sure that's not going to be a problem here as the pictures show it attaching to that same cross member.
A 07/15/2020, 1:48:15 PM We haven't test fit a full skid group on a manual truck here at the shop, but the engine skid should be unaffected as we are mounting to the rear lower control arm / diff cross member, which is the same on all trucks. As far as the mid skid goes, it is designed for a trans cross member with a center line that is approximately 23" back from the center line of the rear lower control arm/diff cross member.
Q John Slotemaker • 09/06/2020, 11:07:36 AM Has there been any definitive answer on the manual transmission question? I would like to order the full set of skids, but only if they are fully compatible with the 2016 manual transmission.
A 09/09/2020, 3:26:39 PM The skids will work with a manual trans.
Q Adam • 10/22/2020, 11:05:37 AM With the skids, do you guys supply stainless hardware? If not, is that recommended?
A 10/26/2020, 5:00:50 PM We supply zinc coated hardware in most skid applications. You could use stainless, but be sure to use antiseize as well.
Q Mike • 01/23/2021, 1:48:12 AM Can you specify the hardware that this comes with on size and thread count? Just in case something is missing in the box that needs ordered? Specifically the nut and thread for the oil filter door

Just got it bolted on and it seems pretty solid and looks nice and clean. The holes were a little tricky to line up having to line up the bolts on the inside of the frame cross member, but it was doable. 3 Stars because the oil pan drain plug does not line up with the hole. It's off about 4" on my 2011. I ended up grinding an ugly hole in it so that I can access the drain plug. Also the bolt on window compartment doesnt go anywhere on my model. The oil filter is accessed from under the hood. Be aware this is not cleanly designed for all models in this 05-15 model range.
