L400 Skid Plate Mounted

Post by islander20 » Wed Jul 29, 2015 1:02 pm

Finally got my skid plate made up and installed

Very beefy, quite pleased with it. Those stock "splash gaurds" did more harm than good.

Do you have any details re the design and materials used? Cost?
I've been wanting to make one but haven't had the time to get down there and mock it up.

Credit goes to tigweld4u, he was kind enough to post the plans online. On the UK forum. I got it built out of 3/16" aluminum, its quite solid.

Yea quite pleased with it. It came to 400$ and that was with help installing. If I had have done the install alone it would have been about 275$

I'm thinking about using a section of conveyor belt from a coal mine, thick and pretty much rock proof, somewhat flexible. It's a bitch to cut though, but with it being somewhat flexible I won't need any fancy bends

I cant seem to get a picture that shows the exhaust or skid plate any better. I needed a new exhaust, for the same price as getting a stock muffler I was able to go with a custom 2.5" side exit exhaust. Happy with it, wish the shop had have replace the exhaust up to the turbo but what can you do.

do you have a LWB, cause on my SWB it looks like it will be close to the electrical connectors on the rear heating unit
