Default Rookie on here from Detroit.. Roush '13
Hey Guys,

New to the scene; took the truck out to Silver Lake this past weekend. Overestimated the stock skid-plate, and damaged the trans-cooler, busted the skid plate, and broke the brackets to the exhaust..

Needless to say, I had a ton of fun in the truck, and am looking for some smarter guys (and girls) with this truck to offer some advice on what to buy in terms of getting her ready to play in the sandbox again.

I took the second dive on Test Hill going 60.. and the angle change just destroyed the front end, btw.

Thanks for any help you can offer!

Its just a flesh wound! you will be fine...... walk it off. We have all been there brother. Crossed over the top of a dune to find it wind swept and came down crooked and crack the windshield.

We all go through skid plates, that is what they are there for. I'm glad you had fun. Welcome my friend!
