Awesome product Christo! Fit and finish were.....well.... Slee quality! Bolts were about 3/16" too long but other than that it's a awesome addition!

Default i know this is old but what the heck

so I put slee's elocker guard on...
really straight forward unless you strip the head off the hardest-bolt-to-get-to-cause-you're-upside-down-underneath-and-turn-the-bolt-the-wrong-way...

figured I'd share these pics anyway even though this is 2 yrs old.

slee's guard is amazing quality of course as I am sure many know by now....

so I had to go in from the wheel well cause best access to top bolts is jacking up truck, then letting axle droop. through the right rear wheel well, you can get to all 4 real easy. Had to do that after doing the aforementioned bone-head-strip-job

The only thing I was concerned about was the fact that the electrical connector plug was kind of left out in the open. Stock guard is thin, but does offer that tab showin the above picture over one electrical connector...

So, I split that portion off of original guard to re-use in conjunction with slee guard; it's thin but that tab is the only protection for the one electrical plug exposed and that portion will mount up perfectly with the two studs used on stock configuration....

This is the final pic of the slee guard mounted plus the trimmed portion of the original guard mounted using the two stock mounting studs. This should provide additional protection with that tab over the electrical plug. Granted it is thin and probably totally unecessary but the plug is physically up higher and protected from direct contact by its position.
The only possible contact would be from some kind of debris kicking up and hitting it, this trimmed portion of stock guard should care for that type of scenario, plus its super-easy to do since the trimmed portion includes the two mount points. So well worth the extra five minutes to re-use that little chunk of the stocker IMO

idea about using part of the stock guard Mike

I'll have to see if I kept mine and do the same as I had the same concern about the harness...Not problems in a year plus but hey, easy enough to do so why not
