They left enough space under the fender so you can access the two bolts without having to remove the sliders. That notch had to be cut for the bolt head clearance anyways, so they just made it a little bigger for easy access.

Yep it was pretty easy! The rear mat didn't fit right though. I didn't have time to mess with it but it might be because of the rear DVD player. Not sure? I will check it out tomorrow.

Re: Omelet's Build Thread!

I know the husky liner has marks for trimming out for the dvd. Check yours it might as well.

Ok thanks! It was a tight fit right in the middle but loose and not very fitting everywhere else. I will mess with it tomorrow.

For anyone interested, here is some info on the Asfir skids from the US distributor I met with:



1. The factory and development is in Israel. As a large Military vehicle contractor in the European/Middle East market all of our products are designed to take incredible abuse.

2. Our Skid Plates are made from 1/4" 5052 Aluminum. The same material used for armored vehicles for over 100 years. I drop our 6000 lb. JK on rocks here in AZ and other than a dent and scratch here they are up to the task.

3. We are more expensive than other skid plates on the market, but that is because of the engineering, additional coverage we offer and some material cost differences.

4. The weight savings is half as much as a comparable steel set. On a JK the core 4 pieces net 85 lbs versus 180 - 195 lbs for steel.

5. Aluminum does not crumple like steel when you land on it. As the Modulus of Elasticity is much greater it will flex and return to shape much better. Plus if you happen to bend it a 5 lb. sledge on the neighbors driveway will bring it back to shape. As an added measure 5052 is a work hardenable material and when you pound it back into shape it gets stronger.

6. 5052 does not grab on rocks, the softer material molds around shapes and deflects. Not to say you will not get some scratches/gouges on them, but that just proves they are working.

7. Aluminum will not corrode. Everytime the material is scratched or abraded it will regenerate a new layer of aluminum oxide to protect itself. So scratch and gouge away, it will not affect it.

8. We sell this line for the Daily Driver that wants to get his rig home on monday to get to work but likes to go out and play with the assurance that the vital components of the vehicle are well protected.

Re: Omelet's Build Thread!

Sweet, I love how your jeep looks like its had a tummy tuck. It looks more like a KOH buggy under there now. What are you going to do when you do the SL? Will they have to rework the shape of the skids?

What is different about the aluminum that it has a regenerating layer of oxide that prevents corrosion. It seems like everything else that aluminum in the US no matter what kind of finish, eventually corrodes when exposed to the elements and road salt.

Re: Omelet's Build Thread!

Aluminum does not have what technically called pig iron in the chemical makeup. Thus the adsence of iron means corrosion is limited because oxidation and moisture are not a factor. 5052 is a similar makeup to billet t6 I believe may be mixed up which is used a lot on external parts for automotive, motorcycle and aircraft.

Omelet those sliders are AWESOME! I've already emailed them about a set for mine. They are exactly what I've been looking for!
All the other armor looks great too, with the material being the best part about if. No more rust FTW!

Here's a couple of quick pics of the front two mats. I am quite happy with them an they got the wife's seal of approval!

I still need to instal the rear.
