    Saw this skid plate on ebay and wanted to ask if it was a good one or not?

    Skid Plate:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/NEW-...trksidZp3286Q2em20Q2el1116QQitemZ250293644310

    Also, I saw some 884 OME coils that were recently listed. Look to be a good deal if anybody is interested... I ordered my pair last week otherwise I would have waited it out to see how much this auction goes for.

    884 Coils:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290269091405&ru=http%3A%2F%2Fmotors.shop.ebay.com%3A80%2F__%3F_from%3DR40%26_trksid%3Dm39%26_nkw%3D290269091405%26_nd1%3D%26_fvi%3D1

    Ultimately, I wanted to know what you guys thought of that skid plate and if anybody has boughten it?

    Thanks!!

    I think the skid would be a better design if it didnt have all the holes in it.
    FYI, the link for the 884's is the one for the skid. :D

    That looks like a Downey Offroad skid plate. Those are supposedly pretty heavy duty. I thought I read something about the holes being there for when you do your oil change that way you don't have to remove it.

    Well it does use the picture off Downey's site and it's curious to see the seller is out of Santa Fe Springs just like Downey Offroad.

    The Downey skid is $185 while this one, including shipping, is $211.90. I'd rather go with the real thing.
