I got a light bar which does a decent job protecting the front lip of the spoiler, but nothing for the underside. I've been looking into an aluminum skid plate and diff guard from primitive, rally armour and/or rally innovations.

What about aluminum wheel well inserts, anyone done DIY?

I don't want to baby my car, that's not why I bought it, I plan to keep hammering through snow with it and am happy spend the money and effort to keep it up, just wondering what I can do to replace the Fisher-price OEM undercarriage "protection"

So far I've found decent upgrades for the skid plate, nothing really for wheel wells or the front spoiler. The"one timer" plastic plugs used to fasten the dust caps on the spoiler are a joke, I'll probably just seal them up with right stuff and access the fog lights from above.

I know this is a rant, but at least it's in the right section haha.
Sounds like you should lift it and get some real skidplates. Remove front lip in winter and not sure about the wheel wells.
