Stock skid plate removal

What's the trick to removing the stock skid plate without twisting the rubber isolators apart?

Mine came off hard the first time I did it. Some of them came out of the oil pan, some of them the nuts just spun off. Not sure why. I just removed the nuts that could come off, then I removed the rubber mounts out of the oil pan in the ones that the nuts were on too tight. I had two of each. What a bitch. Then, I used a 17mm wrench (I think??? Check that) on the rubber part, and the right size socket on the nuts...a quick snap of the two, and the nuts came loose. The whole time, I was pretty sure I was going to destroy the rubber parts. After inspecting them, it didn't appear that I did. It was almost like the shop used lock title on two of the nuts...what a pain.

A battery powered impact screwdriver unless some idiot used red loctite on the studs. Blue locktite will not be a problem. GH

Skid plate

Got it off, just used a ratchet and socket and twisted the nuts off. It was a little unnerving thinking the isolators would tear but they didn't, they held up well. The nuts snapped off with enough pressure put to them. Thanks for the replys.
