Not sure if this is the right section so my apologies. This fall we have had two pretty nasty wet, slushy snow storms, the first if which I posted a problem with ice build up behind the front fender liners. A week later we had another similar storm that was followed by some freezing temps and followed again, by some barely above freezing temps for several days. The problems I have witnessed have been huge chunks of ice that have built up under the truck, making noises, clunks, and what have you for days. After 5 days of above freezing temps, I think I pulled the last football sized chunk of ice out from a cross member. I realize that these storms are not the norm as I have not had this problem previously but I guess I am wondering if skid plates would improve the situation or make it worse. I've wanted to get some OEM plates because I do go mild off roading from time to time but winter hiway driving is my main use. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
