Buy a 1M skid for it. It'll be a direct bolt-on.

If you like to modify a bit, M-series float skid will work too. You need to add 1cm thick aluminum to narrow tunnel at front mount as the M-series front arm is narrower than ZR style. Rear arm should bolt on, but you need move the rear mounts to fit M-series skid location.

Here's a pic of my rear mounts I made By my self. I used the same thick aluminum plate at front to narrow the tunnel. Just bolted over the stock holes and drilled holes.


I removed the stock running boards and bought aftermarket ones. I installed the boards higher at back to increase space between boards and snow. I bought M-series rolls and gussets so I took the measures from M-series to fit all together.
