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.
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.
The Oil Change Access option gives you the ability to change your oil with out removing the Skidplate, it is a 2.25" round hole that gives you access to the drain plug and a 4.1" round hole that gives access to the oil filter. For more info read this article:
**Not available with Stinger Tail option**
The Stinger Tail option makes the plate double thickness in the most critical area, under the Oil Pan, it also recesses the heads of the rear mounting bolts taking them out of the stream of debris.
**Not available with oil hole option**
If you have an Aftermarket Exhaust manifold or "Headers" that hang much lower than the stock exhaust manifold you may need longer spacers and hardware to mount the skidplate, add the header spacer option.
**Will decrease ground clearance compared to normal configuration skidplate, to provide room for that low-hanging aftermarket heaader**

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 […]
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 […]
We get asked this question pretty often and it’s not as simple as it would seem, Subaru’s don’t have very large wheel openings and even so the size of the wheel opening often isn’t even the limiting factor. Modern Subaru’s all have Mcpherson strut front suspension and the older ones have both Mcpherson strut front […]
A lot of our customers are new to Subaru ownership having switched from bigger SUV’s or Trucks to Subaru’s because they have better fuel economy and are just simply more comfortable to drive but still have off road capability. Subaru has built its brand around their symmetrical All Wheel Drive system which performs very […]
