    Dang lol. see the hair line crack on the bottom well to the very top there is welding as if it was added for support. i wonder by looking at this what kind of difference I can expect without it in a ride if I remove it

    its one of two things or BOTH............

    1) a ride plate tab in the middle of the plate for lift

    OR

    2) a protective plate to stop stuff from hitting that steering nozzle for whatever reason they felt it necessary (maybe beaching they felt it would help & not stress nozzle) who knows

    its obviously somebodies after thought and has been added for one of those reasons............BET!!!!!!!!!!

    So is it safe to say I can remove it and smooth out the edge?
