They'll be steel I6 plates, but I'll wait to powder coat them, until I know what individual orders will be... i.e. whether each customer wants the bolt head protectors or not...

So would the price be slightly cheaper for those who want bolt protectors and powder coat this time since you dont have them pc'd before you add the bolt head protectors?

Cheaper than when you asked me about them (2 runs ago), yes, but not cheaper than the last run with pricing on the last page... $165 shipped in the CONUS for regular steel with P/C, and $185 shipped in the CONUS for regular steel, bolt protectors, and P/C...

I talked to our facilities manager about the hard-stop date of TECORE and the skidplate order I've got in, and he said no problem, we can definately work them in before then...

The current order of 4 (of which, Zero is getting one at TECORE) are punched, so they will 100% definately be ready for TECORE...

I've got 3 I6 steel oil pan skids in stock (finished) in the next week, so let me know if you want one!

Thanks,
Mike

Sounds like your hands need skidplates aswell
This is an aggressive post. You probably won’t like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to be able to appreciate a post of this quality and depth.

:Iagree:

From my own experience, radiator area takes far more abuse than the oil pan area. There's a lot more scars on my ghetto rad skid than on my plastic oil pan skid.

I agree with all of you, but for right now, this is all I have. I will be grabbing a rad guard in the near future, and getting the jet stream rad hoses (Need to do a coolant flush / change).

I don't think Jetttstream is going to ever make them again for non SS's. They had a clearance sale a while back b/c no one was buying them.

Found this: http://forums.offroadtb.com/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=900

But it about time you got that skid on there, haven't you had it for months now?! Just 4 bolts...


Haha just busting your balls man.

Ya I have had it for a while, but I got hit on my motorcycle on June 8th (mini van turned left in front of me) , and have only recently had the strength in my right hand to do anything on the truck. It still looks like I will need pins in my hand to re attach some torn tendons. But my hand is a long way from my heart...ill live! hahahaha
