Front Skid Plate (Blue) (Slash) From RPM
RPM front and rear Slash skid plates are completely redesigned, making them stronger and much more durable. Our unique designs use three chassis mounting points instead of two, triangulating the chassis mounts on the truck, in turn spreading impact energy over a larger area.
This is done using holes already located in the stock chassis, meaning no drilling is required. We also eliminated the cross-tube styling of the stock skid plates in favor of a solid flat skid design with a large radius at the transition points to allow the truck to slide over obstacles that would have normally caught on the stock rear skid plate. That means no more direct impacts to the lower rear end of the truck, which is the primary source of a broken chassis.
The front skid plate features a new bell-crank mounting system that eliminates the need to remove the bell-crank every time the front skid plate is removed. This system simplifies maintenance and eliminates the annoying problem of the bell-crank screws popping out of the chassis support holes after an impact to the front end.
Additionally, our bell-crank mounting system fully supports both the upper and lower portions of the bell-crank reducing steering slop and giving a more precise feel to the steering system.
