Hardcore 4x4 T-case skid plate

Just got my Hardcore 4x4 T-case skid plate. SHAKE HANDS WITH BEEF! Damn, Johnson was right, this thing is bad-arse. Can't wait to put it in and bounce off a rock.

As far a "bulletproof", I'm gonna test it when I get home. That's right folks, I'm gonna shoot it with a FMJ .22 WMR tonite followed by a 9mm. I'll post the results.

Re: Hardcore 4x4 T-case skid plate

We'll my better half (as she calls herself) put a kabosh on the shooting thing. Besides, its 3/8" plate steel, which we use as targets at the shooting range. So I know it's bullet proof.

As far as the install, it went just fine. Fit like a glove. Took all of about 15 mins. with 2 people. Mounting system was well thought out. No J or U-bolts. Mounting brackets can be welded (what we did) to the top of the frame to make future uninstall/reinstall real easy.

We took it out for testing on out private trails and climbed over a few stone walls, purposely dropping and dragging over big rocks. I'm glad to report that it worked wonderfully. It didn't budge a fraction of an inch.

Oh, and KANDO, if you are refering to me as being a "hick", there are no "hicks" in New York. We New Yorkers only make fun of the other states for having them. *g*

and

http://www.izook.com/tech/skidplate/skidplate.htm

This thing is bad. I went out again today just to put a few more scratches in it for testing purposes

Yeh, Tim Porter makes some good stuff. He created my rear bumper and swing away tire carrier when I was in Ohio for a few days! and it works great too!

Re: Hardcore 4x4 T-case skid plate

KANDO,

Okay,no offense taken. Actually, at first I chuckled when I read it but then said, "Hey, is he calling me a hick or something?"

And to clarify on the no "hicks" in New York. Actually there is. See theres a large NYC suburb on Long Island called "Hicksville". So New Yorkers who live there would be called "Hicks", I guess.

My attempt at humor.

p.s. Will the rocks be shooting at me in Moab?
