Good stuff but it seems a bit thin material. Been thinking of making a few for my RPM subframe.

i'm assuming you have to take it off each time you want to change oil? also, how much extra caution do you take when you go over something or the road comes to a point where you might bottom out or come close to it?

I do have to take it off for an oil change but i have ogtten it down pretty well, its only 4 bolts after all and since its aluminum its fairly light...I rallyx'd it the other week and it was by far the worst terrain ive ever driven on, took the hits like a champ, probably would of ended up with a dented oil pan without it.

You know what the layout/dimensions on that are? Where did you attach it? I'm in the same boat as OP. THANKS!

Almost 3 weeks now and everything is holding great. I heard some vibration after the first day but tightening the bolts has solved the problem.
