    I don't think the military skid plates were anything different than what was offered normally, but I don't think normally they were installed at the factory but by the dealer. I haven't see pictures of all the different variations of skid plates over the years, so these are interesting.

    Sounds like an opening for a skid plate section, in the Scout Encyclopedia, version 2. :)

    Looks a lot like the plate on mine. I’ve always wondered if was a factory item. I’ll take a pic in the morning.

    Randall, my '62 chassis had a winch and that same skid plate, so I think it was a winch kit thing. I left that skid plate off mine due to the weight and irritating access to grease and check the differential. I had to drop a leaf spring to get it off. It needed a bit more clearance or it was locked in there above the springs. I thought about giving it away, but the shipping would be a deal killer. Ended up in my neighbors scrap pile.

    The bolts hanging down on the central cross member skid plate would sure catch on things. They usually have carriage bolts there to slide over things.

    Jerry, you are correct on the anti mouse name. I got it backwards. Close though :cornfused:

    NP. If you bring up or suggest a non Binder related product, you're obligated to provide a working URL to it. :)

    X2 for Fresh Cab. I get it from Amazon. They make beds out of dryer sheets, soap they just don’t care.

    Damn things we have here liked Irish Spring. Nibbled on the slices and carried pieces of it all over the place. Seemed like it was nothing more than a party platter for them. Dryer sheets did nothing as well. Begining to think , like people, different kinds of mice from different areas act differently towards some stuff. Mint spray 'seems' to work though. Going to try some of that cab fresh in the camper now as well. It's been very quiet but it's the time of the year that the pesty stinkers will be looking for shelter again and every little bit helps.

    so true.

    Mice only care about making a mess and making stink.

    Only difference in S2 skids i have ever come across are the tank skids and the front plate skid (S2 middle skid all look same to me from ones i have seen and have stored)..both my current sets are the same for front and middle skids.....its not like we did not make skids at home or bought from an ad in back of a magazine so anything is and was pretty much possible...old guys had the older stuff...as kids we had the better option and were of course smarter then mom and dad..went for the S2...

    And you know what? If I would have taken Jeff Jamison's advise and looked at this thread (again), I would have avoided all the embarrassment on my silly tailgate holes question yesterday!

    And what was the final decision on those tailgate holes?

    Inquiring minds need to know ! :)

    LOL.
    One of the reasons I like to buy Scouts is to learn a little something about them.
    I still think it's crazy that someone didn't trash that spare on the tailgate a long time ago.
