I'm Mike. Most of you know me from the other site. I've been selling the 1/4" aluminum oil pan skid plates for just over a year now, and am starting to also make the same thing in .179" steel. These mount into the factory plastic shield's M8x1.25 threaded nuts in the frame, and require no drilling, tapping, or fabricating on your part. They are a simple bolt on, though if you haven't had anything in those holes in the frame, you might want to run an M8x1.25 tap through the holes, to clean out the mud/sand/road debris.

The aluminum skid plates are $165 shipped in the CONUS with stainless hardware (plus $20 adder for powder coating, if requested). The steel skid plates are also $165 shipped in the CONUS, but automatically come powder-coated textured gloss black, with stainless hardware.

I take Paypal or Money Order, and will take a check if you want to wait for it to clear.

PM me for payment information!

Pics are below... Feel to post any that you have, in this thread, as well!

My current stock consists of:

(1) 1/4" Aluminum V8 oil pan skid plate for $155 shipped

and

(3) 7ga (.179") steel I6 skid plates, powder-coated glossy textured black for $145 shipped

FWIW, HardtrailZ400 is the first one to have one of these, as of when I drop it off at his place tonight on the way home from work!

Explain yourself, Padawan. :poke: What is this "paint" of which you speak? :angry whip:

Seriously, I painted mine with spray-on truck bed liner. Lasted a couple of weeks. Almost not worth taking it off - just play it where it lies.

Steel makes you swagger with a little more confidence over those rocks ... I know I feel better knowing I have some armour down "there".

The paint is for well cleanlyness and to keep it from corroding... I live in a very salty area right by the Ocean. Also depending on when i do all this "paint work" it might not be paint, but paint is easier to fill (Rustoleum most likely if i end up going with paint).

Happened. Will get pics this afternoon and post up this evening. Fit right in without any issue. I had it in place and all four bolts hand tight by the time my buddy got the socket out for me.
