Over the course of the last 10 days my oldest son has rear ended me twice. First time bent the crap out of the tail gate and put a slight dent in rear cross member. He couldn't get stopped in the mud, no big deal.
Today we were leaving town and some idiot decided to make a left turn, suddenly and no turn signal. I stopped but my son hit me again, this time bending the rear cross member even more.
How difficult is it to remove these and/or change out? Our rigs are nothing but play toys. It doesn't bother me to much, but my son feels compelled to fix it properly- since he did it.

You will have to drop the fuel tank as that's what holds the back of the skid plate up. I believe that they are welded on so you will have to cut the old one off and then weld in the new one. Good time to build a heavier duty one though.
