Hey everyone, I'm lowering my teg in a couple of weeks and need some advice. I drive around my brother's teg a couple times here there and his teg is lowered about 3 inches (I think). I usually hit everything including speed bumps, low driveways etc. What I was wondering was if anyone has made or thought of a steel skid plate that goes on the bottom of your teg. I was thinking of cutting the big plastic piece attached to the front bumper and replacing it with some diamond plate steel or something else like that. I am looking for some sort of idea that would protect my oil pan and other expensive acura parts that I don't have the money to replace if I bottom out. Any feedback would help. Thanks.

Brian.

They sell skid plates for body kits, kinda like the eclipse on fast and the furious. BUt imo thats kinda "ricey". My car is lowered about 2". I dont think you need a skid plate man. You just have to get used to driving a little more cautiously.

do you go drive over drive way bumps, or speed bumps slanted a little? always helps me, there probably is some reason that no one has put a full underbody protection plate in though, maybe because of heating issues, or water build up, plus it would make your car even lower too, and it would be a pain to take on and off to work on your car. I have a friend that I swear thier car is only an inch off the ground and they make it over speed bumps, barely.

Well, it would have to be something easy to take on and off of course. If you have ever worked on an older pathfinder it has a skid plate with 10 bolts that you have to take off just to do an oil change. I thinking about something that attaches to about 4 to 6 points that you can bolt into, its just an idea thats up in the air. I just want to know if anyone else has thought about this and has any suggestions.

Is this a show car? Or is it the look?
It might be better to raise it back up to a hieght that is user friendly. A skid plate is going to make the car even lower.
