Reggie, what skidplate do you use? The Richochet one is different than most skidplates, it actually uses four bolt threw the existing tabs on the bottom of the frame, and unless I'm seeing it incorrectly, the skidplate only touches the frame at four small round standoffs, not along the frame rails like most other plates.

The tape could still help with noise some, but I don't think it will as much as with a traditional style skid plate.

Thanks,
Matt
