RROR skids install, what's this extra piece?

Installed River Raider skids on my JKUR yesterday.



The box had this piece, pictured below, in it. It's not mentioned in any of the instructions, not shown on the exploded diagram and the holes don't line up with any of the holes in the skids?

Any idea's of what it's to? I've tried but it's not a skid for the flux capacitor.

That's for your chest, so you can hang it on a Flava-Flav kinda chain and let everyone know you're RROR. YEAH BOOOYYYYYYYEEEEEEE!!!!

Seriously, there's gotta be an install guide somewhere. Sweet skid, BTW.

The instructions are little weak but it's not mentioned in the instructions or shown in the exploded diagram and parts list. I even check for updated instructions on the web and also searched for install write ups. I'm 99% sure it's not part of the kit, just wondering if I can use it somewhere else?

I heard the RROR instructions were kinda anemic. As long as nothing is missing, maybe they accidentally put in an extra part.????

I only have the front skid of this kit. Did you get a fomoto valve as when you pull the plug it is freaking mess. I did not and first oil change after and it wont go out the hole. went down the skid and what a mess. now I just hook a hose on the valve and no mess no fuss.

That must be some sort of reinforcement plate. where it goes............

Sent an email to RR over the weekend, Kenny Replied early today. He was sorry that it was not in the instructions yet. They added and extra support to beef up the rear of transfer case skid. I'll need to drill a few holes. I'm glad they included it. Looks like it will add a lot of strength.

ah, figured that was what it is. Looks like a Elephant could rest on it now, and it is.
