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 longer spacers and hardware to mount the skidplate, add the header spacer option.
**Will decrease ground clearance compared to normal configuration skidplate to allow room for those low-hanging aftermarket headers**

Hi 2006 Outback 25i owner, 2″ of lift is not too realistic for that car. We find frequent front CV axle failures for cars lifted 1.5″ or more. The CV angles become too great and the CV’s are already old. WHEN you do replace the front CV axles, only get the factory REMANUFACTURED ones from […]
” The setup is fantastic Paul, it feels like a totally different car. Thanks so much for the guidance and help. Regards, -Ben ” Ben ordered KYB struts (with up-rated rear struts) and paired with the King Raised Springs on his ’06 OBXT and appears to love it.
” Hey, I just wanted to say that I received the kit and got everything installed. Everything was spot-on and fit up perfectly. I loved how each different stage of the install had its own separate set of instructions, parts list, and photos. It was really nice to never second guess which hardware to use […]

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 the extra protection.
