Just installed the Ricochet skid plate.

Overall, I’m satisfied with the purchase. The plate and all the brackets weigh approx. 8.5 lbs.

My big complaint, however, is the instructions are completely devoid of suggestions for torque on the many fasteners. The most critical are the upper and lower engine mounting bolts. Undertorque these and your engine could fall off or overtorque and you could crack the block or head.

Does anyone have a shop manual? If so, could you look up the torques for me?

Thanks Wheels, chart is helpful, shows 31 ft lbs for grade 8.8 10mm zinc plated. That sounds about right.

Sadly, you are mistaken re color. Everyone knows red is the fastest color.
