More info

Primitive Skidplates offer the best protection for the underside of your car, they are rally proven, tough enough for off-road abuse or to save you from that random piece of debris laying in the middle of the freeway.

  • Made From 5052 Aluminum.
  • Polished Finish.
  • Offers full protection of the underside of the engine.
  • Rear edge of the plate is up-turned so if you have to reverse over something it won't get hung up.
  • Improves aerodynamics and airflow.
  • Does not reduce radiator or cooling system efficiency.

Thickness:

The 3/16" is the most popular, if you have any doubt about if you're even getting extreme enough off-road to warrant the added protection we automatically recommend getting the 3/16".  The added cost and weight over the 1/8" is very minimal, but the one time you need it, it pays for itself.  We also recommend it for any vehicle participating in Rallycross.

  • 3/16" Plate weighs 18.5lbs

Oil Change Access Hole:

The Oil Change Access option gives you the ability to change your oil with out removing the Skidplate, it is a 2.5" round hole that gives you access to the drain plug.  For more info read this article:  http://get-primitive.com/blog/oil-change-access-holes/

Great Skidplates and Brushgaurd!

February 14th, 2016 Hi Paul, Just wanted to let you know how happy we are with the triple armour skid plates and brushbar on our 2012 Outback. Have some Lightforce auxiliary lights on it which makes the driving in our long dark winters up here in the Yukon much safer and enjoyable, definitely have helped spot the wildlife, and it’s nice having […]

Thanks from Down Under! ’09 Forester XS

From Hamish in Australia with a 2009 Forester! Hey again, Just wanted to give some feedback after taking the kit out for some offroading. First of all the lift looks awesome, and really makes the vehicle stand out. The ride is better than stock with much less body roll, and it handles charging over speed […]

Oil Change Access Holes

  Oil change access holes in Skidplates are a paradox that we encounter continuously at Primitive Racing.  You’re putting large holes directly under the two most vulnerable places of your engine, the main two places the Skidplate is designed to protect.  So the decision should be clear, but unfortunately not. One of the most common […]
