Do I HAVE to replace the belly pan?

My belly pan is in pretty good condition. Actually really good. Only the rear panel NEEDS to be replaced. I am taking the shell off to replace the subfloor. My question is: does the entire belly pan need to be removed? Or can I leave on the good parts?
Can someone give some insight? THANKS!

Absolutely not! If most of it is good, then by all means reuse it. Just remember, you want to break it at a crossmember, and the piece in the back goes up against the crossmember with the piece at the front overlapping it. That way you don't get crud caking up in the joint if you make it the other way

See ya on the road,

- Jim

Thank Jim! So what you are saying is the belly pan needs to come off and be put back on, correct?
