For those of you who have been secretly craving a Skidrow Offroad front skid, but were afraid to buy 'cause it was painted rainbow coalition silver (you know who you are), they now come in black powder coat as well.:grinpimp:

Shoot, this means mine will have to be painted black, I told Eric at Skidrow when we were designing this that the "Rainbow" looks a little suspicious. :rainbow:That's it, going up to Skidrow tonight & get a Black one.

So are you saying it's flimsy? I'm interested in the new black one.

It's not flimsy, but other than serving as a major billboard for Skid Row and adding weight, what purpose does it really serve?

Well........

It's not flimsy, but other than serving as a major billboard for Skid Row and adding weight, what purpose does it really serve?

...it is a reasonably priced replacement for the air dam which will not hold up to any rough contact...I suppose one could argue what level protection it provides, but who cares...adding weight? Why 99.99999% of Wrangler owners don't care about weight...just look at the mods on these boards...steel wheels, steel bumpers, winches, 37" gums, anti IED armor plate for the undercarriage...weight??? That's not in any Jeep dictionary I'm aware of...and yes...I like the billboard skid plate;)

I'm with you, Dustoff. It's not like the plastic air dam is completely weightless. So by replacing it with a metal plate, sure you're adding some weight, but not enough to make much of a difference in terms of mpg. Part of what you're buying with this front plate is piece of mind. Plus, I like the billboard too!

Weightless is really not the main question. Uselessness is. Why would I want to replace the front air dam? There's nothing up there to protect. (Non-Rubi)

Who cares...it's cheap, and has a greater protection potential than chrome bling bling gas doors , or plastic "Shehara" side steps, etc., ad nauseum...btw, there is a lot up front that could use protection...;)

I have one. It's lying in the pile of crap I've pulled off the JK. It covers two horizontal pieces of the frame. BFD. I've just been looking for someone to convince me that it wasn't the largest amount of $$$ I've wasted so far. I guess it might offer some protection from the parking stops at the mall.:lol:

:laughing: It's the only part of my JK (see avatar) that doesn't seem to collect any carnage. It doesn't work with the Nates4x4 bumper anyhow.
