Good point indeed! lol I know by welding on any vehicles frame you can take out some of the temper of the steel itself, drilling in a structurally important area is a bad thing as well. I'd recommend a welder who has this in mind and has structural steel experience as well, to ovoid "cooking" the temper from the steel. Warranty or not, the skid plates themselves are on to prevent damage the warranty isn't going to cover anyway though..... Kind of a damned if you do even more damned if you don't scenario! lol Good point to know what the warrany impact is though.
