    It was 2 years ago. I think 350 is the deal now. And there isn't any shipping. Plus you inspect it first

    You can get the ARB skid plate from 4wheelparts relatively quickly, but it’s (1/8” ??) steel if that is a deal breaker.

    Your truck is the current generation. :thumbsup:

    Might as well get real aftermarket ones. (FTFY)

    The OE ones are nice looking and do fine with modest debris/sticks/brush and mall duty. But a serious knock and they will collapse. Or at least dent very well. Just a characteristic of that gauge of aluminum. So the question for @Daewooguy5.56 is how hard do you drive it? It doesn't take much to damage a splash pan. So maybe the OE one is robust enough for your needs? If you do go OE and do offroad some, I'd suggest a bedliner type finish, or at least something like BBQ paint, so it's easy to touch up. If touch up matters to you.

    Shazam! Are you saying the 3rd gen has 2 gen DNA lying under that skin? :eek: :D

    My current splash guard has a broken mounting point. I use the truck offroad, but I dont plan of crawling it. I just want the undersided protected from debris

    I picked this one up on Amazon for 280 bucks. It is quite a bit stronger Than the one I replaced. I forget the name. Kuafu? It said it would be here on Feb 1 but I put it on my truck tonight. Pleasant surprise.
