The belly pan?? You mean that useless piece of metal they throw under there for no reason?? I haven't figured that one out yet unless it has something to do with snow. I have 3 trucks here and three belly pans over in the corner, Haven't missed them yet. They just get in the way of routine maint and I'm not going to mess with them. But, if you got $700 to spend on a new one, go for it, I don't. Hope this helps.
