I bought the 3 piece Underbody Shield (Part No. 23176882) a few weeks ago and had all 3 pieces powder-coated a matte red color that would match the red in the GMC emblem..
Fast forward to trying to install them last week and 2 of the 3 fit no problem, however the 3rd (which is the largest & most prominent one visually) did not appear to fit. The back bolt locations line up perfectly where it meets the other plate, however the front piece looks like it isn't long enough or shaped/angled correctly to reach what appeared to be the obvious locations for the provided threaded bolts. This Part No. as a standalone is 23135960 (GM OEM Engine Skid Plate).
My question is this: Does this item actually not fit? I understand the Denali trim level has a different lower bumper due to the LED fogs, but did GM seriously over-engineer this to the point that the internals/bolt patterns & cross members don't match up for these?!?
Hoping someone can provide me some input of confirm I'm just being an idiot & that there is a way to make this fit, because I really want to get this installed or find the proper replacement ASAP..
I've a 2018 GMC Acadia. It is a FWD 3.6L/6T70. Recently, I've not been able to move the shift lever to Low ranges. It was intermittent at first & today I was not able to shift it into low range at all.
Wondering: if anyone else has experienced this?, Fix?, Bulletin? This is a potential safety issue.

Two years into the new model and the GMC Acadia is more popular than ever. With that in mind, few substantial changes are coming down the line in 2019. Look for more information on a special "Black Edition" Acadia in the near future.

Selling my brand new track grill still in the box if anyone is interested.
This custom made grille is an exceptional eye catcher that will be sure to get you many looks, stares, and compliments. The grill has the word duramax in it, therefore it more so compliments the Diesel engine.
Grille is brand new, still in the box. Also comes with 2 light bars already installed; with wiring harness.
