I ordered this kit on June 7 and had it roughly 4 days later. It's comes with nice hardware but I did buy a tube of blue thread locker for the small hardware that's used on the oil change plate.
The plate is 1/4 inch aluminium and weighs roughly 25 lbs. Beefy stuff.
I will include some pictures when I have it installed hopefully later today. Weather permitting.

It shipped from Texas

Did you install this yet? Any feedback on install, fit and did it meet your expectations?

I have this plate just got it installed last weekend. Not to bad to do. Reaching the inner nuts is a bit of a pain. Otherwise pretty easy.
Any pictures of it after installation?

The rear hardware was more of a challenge. Removing a heat shield next to each exhaust pipe (one on each side) made it much easier.
I would recommend this piece. Looks good and protects $3100 worth of converters. Lol

Guys, I will have pictures posted Tuesday. I like the product :) I will like it even more when it comes oil changing time as there are 4 small allen screws to remove a small plate that gives you access to your oil pan bolt or in my case a Fumoto valve which I highly recommend if you install this plate. The "diaper" is permanently removed but tucked away. Hint.... transfer the plate to a future Powerboost.
Install took around 90 minutes but that was with the truck on the ground. Toward the end of the install I put the truck on ramps, yes I wasn't thinking, and that made things much easier not to mention it probably saved me some time.

Here's a few pictures. Not the best but it might give you an idea of how it covers the converters. In the first picture the drivers side cat is above the 9 cutouts.

The package weighed 27 lbs. I tried to weigh the main plate on our bathroom scale with no luck. I would say it weighs a minimum of 24 lbs. It's quarter inch aluminum.
