Default Rally Armor Skid Plate Possibility for Legacy/Outbacks...

Hey guys,
My manufacturer Rally Armor said they will do a front skid plate for the Legacy/Outbacks, but I need a firm commitment of 5 buyers in order to get him to make them. So shoot me IM/PM/E-mail and lets see if we can get the ball rolling. I'll also need someone in the NY/NJ/PA/CT area to let us measure their car up for it as well.

I may be able to let you get dimensions.

But I probably won't buy the parts.

Yes you'd need to take the plate off to do oil changes. Takes about the same time or LESS than removing the stock plastic plate (I always have a problem with thos darn clips) to get to the oil filter and drain plugs.

Hmm ok, well the foresters and WRXs have nasty plast plates under there.

Anyways the plates will need to be removed. Pricing will be about $150-165 + $13 shipping.

Why would these be better than Primmitives? (Not starting crap, my parent's own an Outback than will probably be getting skidplates)

They are both 1/8" Aluminum, so all in all they are similar. (how different can metal plates be) All the Rally Armor plates are solid metal with no cutouts in them to add to structural ridgidity. That is about the only difference between ours and Primitives that I can see. Oh and ours are a little cheaper.

They should clear them. However, if they don't we have spacers we can send you with longer bolts.

That's what we were checking out last night. Not sure how to overcome that. We may include the replacement jack-plate from the impreza depending on cost of the plate.

Ok the 2nd gen Legacy/Outback plates are done (96-99). We will be selling the jacking plates as an add-on to these or you can opt to get the jacking plate separate from a local dealer/ebay/online retailer.
There is a group buy happening on the first 5 sold.
