I have gotten the skid plate from rallitek, but not installed yet because the baja is still at the body shop. They are taking for ever to fix some mistakes that they made. But I should be getting it back tomorrow. But back on track. I highly recommend the skid plate and it is a good price.

Huh? Do you plan on rolling your Baja? That's the only time anyone sees the skid plate on my rally car...

If you guys want we can produce them. We built them for the lifted cars I don't see why we couldn't build them for the baja. Someone else can give you a link to my site, as I have been warned for advertising without being a vendor. Stainless steel is the only way we will do it, and we will only do it if we can get five people to buy them. Cost about $200.

Hey Baja03,

I like the idea of a SS plate. No electrolysis from dissimilar metals like you would get with aluminum. They throw salt and other nasties on the road here to melt the ice/snow and those get trapped between the pieces and will increase the activity.

My factory stuff looks like the pic that yellowblaze posted. I am ready to get the SS piece. I would guess if 5 people contact Allied Armament and commit, he will build us some stuff.

My guess is that it is flat, not diamond plate. The diamond pattern is to make it non-skid for walking.

Count me in for one SS from Allied if we can get 5 people together. I've e-mailed ralitek twice and they don't like to respond

like all those tool boxes that you walk on?!?

I know you can come back and say that some people have to jump up onto their toolboxes, but those are the same people who deserve to slip off them!!!

And this "should" fit the regular legacy and outback too, so cross-post this in the legacy section to get your last few people to join in on the group buy. I would do it, but I just spent all my $$$ on a lightened flywheel...

I don't know of many people that walk on their tool boxes Just remarking on the reason diamond plate exists in the first place. Using the stuff in the fabrication of a tool box for the aesthetics does not remove the original intent for the diamond pattern.

sorry, i was just teasing you.

I think they use the diamond plate on tool boxes because smooth stainless steel would look bad after a few weeks from all the scuffs, dents, and dings. The diamond plate helps hide a lot of that stuff, making the boxes look nice for a long time (or as nice as a huge tool box in your bed CAN look)...
