[B]To Skid or Not to Skid?[/B]

Absolutely! Skid plates are a simple necessity when it comes to overlanding and off-roading. The products we normally think about are the most popular such as rock sliders. However, riding on rocky trails, you have the potential to damage vital components, such as your lower control arms, shocks, gas tanks and similar undercarriage items. And nobody wants a significant unexpected expense.

Aluminum or Steel? That’s the question.

Aluminum: Aluminum and Steel Skid Plates technically do the same job, protect your vehicle from damaging the undercarriage. While Aluminum is the lighter option, it depends which trails you are running. If your off roading on simple trails and just need it as a precaution, Aluminum is the way to go.

Steel: While Steel Skid plates are heavier, they endure harsher environments, slide on rocks easier, and less expensive compared to Aluminum. If you’re not worried about added weight, and are looking for a durable long-lasting option, a steel skid plate is the way to go.
