Aluminum skid

Looking for an aluminum front skid for my 2.7l first gen. Anyone have one with good opinions? I am looking for one with access to the oil drain plug.

Alright I will give that a shot. Looks like what I want won't be easy to obtain. Maybe I can find someone local to fab something up for me.


As far as the aluminum vs. steel debate goes I realize the advantages of steel but aluminum seems worth it for two reasons:
-Won't rust like steel.
-Lighter weight.

I guess if getting aluminum isn't easy or costs a lot I will get a steel one and coat it real good before I install it to head off the rust.

Well if you have a shop you can do what I do. After every year once the cold hits..I just pull all the armor off and repaint it other e sliders..but I paint those too.

It's kinda a pain I guess..but worth it I think.

Was easy when I just had a front bumper

But yea..gonna cost a ton. I can see the weight part being nice though
