Skid Plates

I will be dropping off two skid plates tomorrow at my water jet shop. The first one will cover everything up front from the Radiator support bar back to the transmission mount. The second one will cover the transmission and catalytic converter. I will let you know when they are available for purchase.

I do not have a photo of the front one as it has not be made yet but I can give you a sneak peak at the transmission skid plate:

I am making three of the front and four transmission. No idea on price until the waterjet guys gets the program loaded and can give me a cost to cut and bend them

Re: Skid Plates

Jon, are these compatible with the stock skids? Where does the front skid mount to? To be clear, the front will cover everything including that which the above transmission/cat skid covers? And will it also be compatible with the bumper when you guys get around to finishing it?

Lastly, are they spoken for or do they have yet to find homes?

The easy question to answer is the last one, it is our intention to make all off our products not only compatible with our product line but when ever possible compatible with OEM and other manufactures. I do not want anyone to not purchase a product because they would have to remove something they spent hard earned money to buy. These two products will however REPLACE the OEM skids.

As for your first question. Our front skid will replace the front OEM skid, the transmission skid is a separate item and replaces the OEM transmission skid. Both our skid plates protect more surface area than your OEM equipment.
