The underbody of your vehicle is one area that is most susceptible to damage when off-road. While some trucks may come with some coverage from the factory, its functionality typically stops at deflecting road debris and very light off-road use. Serious off-road travels require serious off-road protection.
ShrockWorks’ skid plate system lets you decide what type of protection fits your driving habits best. We offer our skid plates in both steel and aluminum so that you can protect your investment with a configuration that is best suited for you.
All of our skids are CNC cut and formed from 3/16” plate and reinforced in the areas that need it most. Smooth transitions from one to the next keep you from getting hung up on trail obstacles and plenty of drainage is incorporated to rid your skids of mud and trail debris. Our mounting system secures your skids without any low hanging fasteners to get hung up or damaged as well.
Steel vs. Aluminum
We recommend steel skid plates for moderate to heavy off-road use. Steel construction will handle more abuse than aluminum but comes with a tax in the weight department.
For those who are spending more time on the street with occasional light to moderate off-roading, the aluminum option might be the route for you. Aluminum comes with significant weight savings but will not hold up to the same abuse full steel construction will.
For this reason, we have provided a healthy compromise by utilizing steel cross-members/mounting bracketry with our aluminum skid plates. You may also choose to create your own skid package by mixing steel & aluminum skids as they are completely interchangeable
