Lower weight = more stable. Less chance of rollovers etc...

Although I don't think 20lbs worth of skid plate would affect much.

It's more than 20lbs, easily.

Just opened all of my boxes for my suspension. Everything is accounted for, except for the windshield decal. Not a concern though.

Weight = ****ty performance, poor braking, more parts stress, faster tire wear, higher fuel consumption, less traction, poor handling

All true, and it adds up fast! Currenty, I'm not planning to add more weight in the skid department.
