Looks good. I would say prob not a big deal, but because i took shortcuts im redoing mine so I would put the two bolts in.

I think it has to do with what kind of wheeling you intend on doing. If you're going to be in the rocks taking decent hits, I'd suggest you use all the bolts and make sure it's as strong as possible.

If you're looking for some good protection, but just running light trails where only an occasional hit or 2 is expected, then you're probably good.

I have a tendency to slip off my line and land on rocks with nearly the full weight of the truck. I have some impressive dents/bends in my skids to show for it too. Personally, I want as strong of a setup as possible.

that looks like an old allphase tcase skid. I have one on mine and mounted it with 4 and regretted it. my tcase is worse for wear now.

Cool

well i dont plan to nothing to crazy because it is my daily driver and need it functioning for work on mondays haha, but true shortcuts are rarely a good idea, ill make time to put in the other two holes which is why i didnt put them in the first place (fried one of my drill batteries and my bits are worthless i barely was able to make the last hole) but the other holes are there for a reason so might as well put them to use
