Clint,I like the protection the Skid Plate offers but I don't like the fact I would have to remove it to use my MMM. I mow more than I use the FEL or BB so my mower is on most of the time. The Transmission Fan Guard, while it covers much less, is left on at all times.
I'm thinking about getting one of the tranny fan plates. Do you have any pics of it?
