I wonder if they loosened up something attaching skid pans .Not the skids but what they are covering. Heat shields ,I m like you that would disturb me also. Even tho I am already have a few screws loose.
Your case could be a bigger problem, cut an air line, pull pin on fifth wheel ,knock a hole axle cap. I sure hope you do a pre and post trip unlike my drivers that just jump in and out not even opening the hood on a daily basis.
You all got me thinking about all the inflated numbers ,I do that sometimes .
I purchased my RUBI off the lot JULY 2019 just under $46,000 listed for $53,560 .
2 inch lift ,rims /35 tires ,some skid plates ,roll bar lights (old school )
I am still under list price with mods .
