    ok i finally got around to putting my plow bracket/mount on my 99 suburban 1500 this truck will only see light plowing use.

    my question is, what do you guys do about the air bag impact sensor on the bottom of the core support? to install my mount the little plastic skidplate in front has to be removed and that leaves the impact sensor kind of right out in the open as well as the huge opening it allows to the front bottom of the engine. so thoughts?

    Leave it. Or make a little blocker piece for it.
    I'd replace those oil cooler lines soon, looks like a nice little leak.
