EVAP Skid Plates

Looking at purchasing a skid plate for my EVAP. I have been looking at 2. the River Raider, and the Poison Spyder. I am leaning towards the Poison Spyder since it will also lift the EVAP up a little.

Who else here has put a skid on the EVAP, what brand did you go with, and why?

Thanks!!

Some say I have A.D.D but, Oh look.. a chicken!!

Can't go wrong with either one you listed. I'm running Poison Spyder.

I installed the poisonspyder one in march. It's a strong skid and a fairly easy install.

I think this thing is finally coming together. Still Needed: drive shafts, frame mount rails...then done son! For a while...

I went with the River Raider one......like e-jeep said....cannot go wrong with either skid. the PSC skid looks like an easier install but both are pretty straight forward and will not take you long.

Thanks!!

Next part, where is the best place to purchase? Both are in the same price, right around $99.00.. So, basically, who has the cheapest shipping, or running free shipping?

We have sold more of the PSC ones compaired to the RROR ones. They both are top notch if both fit and finish. I don't think you could go wrong with either of them.

We can also set you up with a shipped total on both so you can compair prices. Let us know, we are here to help!

I'm running the psc one. I've mangled all of my skids but still haven't managed to even hit my evap skid...although i'm sure it will hold up jsut fine if it does take a hit.

I'm biased towards Poison Spyder...I have most of their stuff on my rig. I have the Evap skid from them as well.. The install was easy..Just don't tighten the strap down tight...just snug..You'll understand when you get one. Its tough as Hell!

I too was looking at both the PSC and the RR models.
I ended up going with the RR because I also wanted to get their breather hose extension kit, also... so I ordered both the skid plate and the hose extension at the same time.

Both companies make good skid plates.

I went with the PSC skid because it raises the canister, unlike other skids.

I also searched around for a competitive price, and everyone was priced similarly.

Both are quality parts.I would take into consideration who has one in stock and ready to ship. Because one of those companies has a backorder problem with some products. Good luck.

x2. Only thing I hate about my poison spyder skid is I havent hit it! Well I guess that's a good thing, added clearance is always a plus.

I got Rusty's. I like the fact that the leading edge is angled to deflect oncoming rocks or whatever. Also it's supper heavy (1/4 inch steel) and has a really nice finish. Super easy install. Not to mention the price was right!

As everyone else has said, you can't go wrong with either one. I personally have the RR one, and am very happy with it. I do love me some Poison Spyder stuff though. It's a draw as far as I'm concerned. I like 'em both.

Install is a breeze. It's a matter of what stamp you want on your jeep, I guess. Skull and cross-bones? Or the spyder?

I have the poison spyder and jeepnick has the rockhard. The rock hard is a 10 minute install. It doesn't get any easier. Literally just bolts on. It doesn't get any easier.

The psc requires more effort with having to remove lines and stuff, but is also a quality skid

31 jeeps in... still have issues

I have the Rockhard as well. As stated, super easy install. Only downside to it, in my book, is that it doesn't offer full frontal protection. Other than that, it is a very stout piece of armor.

Of the OP's two choices, I would vote the PSC.

Poison Spyder for me. Got it from Marcus @ River City Offroad and it was a fairly easy install w/o jacking up my Jeep. Very very strong and completely encloses the Evaporater, plus it lifts it 3/4" due to the fact that you remove the factory hanger. It has a cool looking PS cut into it also.
