Just take a drill and drill two holes right over the front of them about 3/8 if the holes aren't already not there

On my 15 there is two holes underneath right in line with the torx head bolts. Just enough room there to get the bit in there.

As for the torx heads...make damn sure u got the right size and get it in there flush and square before turning. I got all except 2 I had to notch for flat head cause they stripped. Then I went to hardware store and got stainless hex heads and threw away the damn torx

I'd probably drill holes in the skid plate like kiliki said. They say to remove it so you can use the holes in the stock guard to access the bolts.

Side note: if you change out the torx bolts, you'll need some of the OEM ones around still if you ever have to change the chain case backer or do a MC drop and roll. The factory torx bolts have threads shaped to roll their own threads in the new parts. Results in stronger threads than tapping.

If you sled is stock, there is no drilling required. There already are holes aligned with these two bolts.

Also, easiest way is to remove the one torx holding the bottom side panel to the footwell brace. this will allow the side panel to flex outwards to get various lengths of torx to take out all the bolts. I use a ratchet with a few different extensions.
