Changed my oil today 1st time on a ford let alone on a raptor. It was def a pain taking off the skids and the one long bolt that holds the two skids together was crossed threaded from that factory so that really chapped my ass. All in all went ok besides the bolt and tinner min nut that goes into the frame. So before the next change I’ll be ordering new bolts and nuts.
Does anyone have the part numbers for the oil drain plug skid plate bolts & nut plates? Can't seem to find them on the Ford parts site or at the dealer.

Found them for front brush guard access to the oil filter but not the drain plug.

I just ordered a tuxedo brand luggage bed cargo holder for all my crap I don't use often enough and hate having in the cab under back seat storage. Things like jumper cables, small cigarette lighter emergency compressor, tow straps and other miscellaneous emergency crap. Might be I little taller than I like but it worth a shot. luckily I have somebody who said its just a heavy canvas like material and can be shortened to about 6 - 8 inches deep or they could fabricate me a knew one with even a zippered top to keep things put....


need to be able to remove easily from time to time this should work well.

After 2 1/2 weeks at the dealership getting issues fixed found during the first week of ownership, I finally was able to put the diamondback on.

Just in time for an upcoming trip.
