While I will not go out and seek rocky sections to play with the Scram... I feel they are bound to occur when you're out and about exploring the back roads...

And that factory skid plate that's 3" too short and leave the oil filter has been "bugging" for some time. Heck, it's been known to give me nightmare... where I dream that some rock will puncture the filter, and I'll be stuck in the middle of no-where... looking for a new filter and 4q of oil

-

So to help me sleep better, I added a 3" extension... I was going to get a local guy to weld it... but decided to have it is hinged instead, so I don't need to remove the skidplate for the occasional oil change.





There's a little less than 1/4" clearance between the bolt and the filter, so for good measures, I taped a piece inner tube over the bolts...
