Default Skid Plate Appreciation Month

Today, my mechanic at Moore Automotive told me I'd hit something so ****ing hard on my undercarriage, that one of the bolts on my Primitive Racing skid plate was permanently driven into the frame of my car. They were able to take the other 2 bolts off, remove a wheel, and simply rotate the plate to one side to get at the oil pan and do their thing.

My point? Well, I dub April "Skid Plate Appreciation Month".

Post how your skid plate has saved your ass and oil pan. Pics are welcomed.

Steve at Primitive Racing: you skid plate has officially paid for itself. **** yah!

I used to rock a plate on my 2.5RS..

I'd kinda want to add one to my 11' STi just for the peace of mind. rear diff protector as well.

Its not like I do any semblance of off roading beyond the dirt track that leads to the RC plane flying field.

Had a friend back in high school work at a Nissan Dealership. Was dropping the skid plate on a Titan and it slipped and landed on his nose. 8 stitches. He is boycotting your celebration.

I really should get one for my FXT, already ripped the stupid plastic undertray off on a gravel road when I cut a corner just a little too much.

This douchey thread notwithstanding, the Primitive plates are excellent. I put all three on my new Outback.
