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 2.5" round hole that gives you access to the drain plug and a 4.5" 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 these longer spacers and hardware to mount the skidplate, add the header spacer option. Also works for DEEP oil pans.
**Will decrease ground clearance compared to normal configuration skidplate to allow room for those low-hanging aftermarket headers**
