Re: Skid plates

I have the Hardcore 4X4 one from Tim Porter. After careful research, it is IMHO the best one on the market in fit and function.

Re: Skid plates

i have the one that zukisouth and rocky-road sells...
its heavy duty, but its a poor design
i had it on for 2 months, i didnt even hit it on any rocks (i drug it over some dirt hills though), and it came off the mounting points (mainly cause they have slots to mount through, not holes like it should be)... it apparently got bent because it wouldnt go back on correctly, so i went and have some little extensions welded onto it for 20 bucks, and now it fits perfectly... it is heavy duty, and will definatly protect the tcase, but it has a poor mounting setup...

looking back i wish i would have known about tim porters plate, cause i would have bought it, but im happy with the one i have (after modifying it of course)

Re: Skid plates

HOWDY, JUST GO DOWN TO D.O.T. AND ASK IF THEY WELL SELL YOU SO OLD STREET SIGNS. MY FRONT SKID IS A STOP SIGN THAT I GOT FOR 5 BUCKS. THING LOOKS NICE WITH SOME HOLES CUT IN IT. AND EVERYONE WILL ASK WHERE YOU GOT IT. BUT DON'T GIVE THEM ALL YOU TRICKS. BUT IF THIS IS TO HIGH A COST GRAB SOME WRENCHES AND DRIVE TO THE NEXT STOP SIGN AT NITE AND THERE YOU GO. BY THE WAY, STREET SIGN MAKE GREAT ROCKER PANELS.

HAVE FUN,
JIMMIE AND MONZUKI

Re: Skid plates

We carry the Hardcore Skidplate in stock, it runs $115.95 plus S/H. It weighs 42 pounds. I am bringing several to the fab fest, show up and save on shipping.

Just to confuse ya

Hey, Tim says to call Tim to order Tim's skidplate. Tim makes a great plate and Tim does a great job selling them and Tim highly recommends them.

Does that make it easier?[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]
