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 1/8" plate is mainly for a replacement/upgrade of the stock plastic splash sheild after it or it's attachment hardware have been broken or lost. Recommended when only driving on snow covered paved roads, gravel roads and some very light off-roading, It will save the oil pan in the event of the unexpected but repeated abuse will cause it to de-form and will decrease it's effectiveness.

  • 1/8" Plate weighs 14.5lbs

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 17.5lbs

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/

Fumoto Valve:

Fumoto Valves make your oil change Cleaner, Quicker and safer. By simply replacing your stock oil drain plug, you can drain your engine oil without tools or mess!

  • Drain your engine oil with the touch of a finger.
  • Replaces drain plug for a quick, easy and clean oil change.
  • No more contact with hot oil and no messy hands or clothes.
  • Eliminates stripped threads.
  • Ideal for drawing small sample of oil for oil analysis.
  • We supply the Fumoto valve with a 5" length of clear vinyl tubing, that fits right on the nipple of the valve for directing the oil.
  • We also supply the valve with a high quality aluminum sealing washer, that ensures long service life without leaks.

The Fumoto Valve pairs very well with the newest generation of Subaru 4 Cylinders, because the Oil filter is on top of the engine making the whole process very simple and clean and also eliminates the need for an extra big hole in your Skidplate if you choose to get the "Oil Change Access Hole" option.
