    I had a Thor Skid Plate on my B5 wagon, but I didn't transfer it to my B5.5 wagon. The OEM plastic belly pan was taken out by a large chunk of ice. I live in northern Wisconsin, but I make frequent trips to Minneapolis, Madison, and Milwaukee.

    Anyone running their Thor without the side wings? Seems like mine are rubbing the bottom of the bumper, making an annoying sound. Thinking about running without them, checking to see if anyone has done this.
