They hang so low that you are pretty much guaranteed to scrape them off-road.
Agreed. I would not consider these rock slide or rails. Typically a rock rail or rock slide can support the weight of the vehicle to prevent damage to the body. Normally mounted directly to the frame on a body on frame vehicle. The full size has them mounted to the body and claim they can support the weight of the vehicle but most are opting to change these to frame mounted for serious off roading.They hang so low that you are pretty much guaranteed to scrape them off-road.
It’s a thick piece of aluminum. Not that makes it better than steel. I don’t plan on doing any rock climbing or even heavy duty off road. I just wanted more protection than what was provided, mainly for oddball road debris that might kick up and do damage. The future may bring something more substantial, but for the here and now, it’s all I can find.Thanx!!
Aluminum? Better than nothing I guess. The BL skid is like 1/8" plate steel...
That with the Rally Inovations bumper skid would be awesome. But that would be around $600 for both
Which product are you referring too?A sort of review. My installation failed. First, the winged fixture is kinda half ass. I do not see it holding its position when you will need it too. Second, The zinc coating on these "nuts" is so thick you can't work the bolt through. Emailed the company, their response is to work the bolt. I tried that, didn't work. If you get this kit be ready to buy a tap and chase the thread. Not sure what I am going to do yet. I will either chase the threads or get some right sized case hardened washers and tack nuts to them.
The plate itself appears beefy enough, should do the job. The holes line up fine. Customer service is not there.
It doesn't look like it covers the fuel and brake lines in front of the gas tank unfortunately.JCR Off-road just announced a full line of under body gear.
