    2016 ltx-se,want to remove the rear skid,do I have to unbolt the torsion springs where they bolt to the rails then just drop the 4 suspension bolts and pull it out?I'm assuming I have to get the backend raised fairly high?looks like it might be tricky getting those spring bolts lined up ,

    Yep. Thats how it comes out. Cam the springs down to full soft and then pull the front mounts on spring to rail mount, rotate spring to release the tension on the cam blocks then pull the 4 bolts and the entire skid fall right out.

    LTX-SE. Only need to pull back two bolts. Front is "slide action" and slips over shaft, or am I missing something?

    I have 2 of them and it's way easier to pull the shaft. You can also inspect the front cross shaft for damage.
