I picked up the SSP undertray this winter when a block of ice tore out my underpanel and one of my brake air guides It's a very nice piece but I have to say I prefer taking off 1000 clips than 1000 bolts, as I take off my bumper pretty frequently (doing headlight blackouts and whatnot, see my sig!).
I figure for me, to replace the whole thing it was around $200. For a couple hundred more (it's about $75 to ship if I remember correctly..) I got a nice aluminum one. It really is a beautiful piece and nothing's getting through that.
There ARE a lot of bolts though to attach it to stock hole locations.
It's easier to install the panel if you have access to a lift and with someone to help hold it up while you bolt it in. I helped out my local shop with the install as best I could because we found it was easier with two people! haha..it's not the lightest panel. Oh, the other downside I noticed - in the past I've driven with my front bumper off (local places within a mile only, like autozone, home depot, etc), easy with the plastic undertray. With the aluminum, I wouldn't recommend it. Due to the weight, if the front bumper is off, there's not a whole lot more supporting it at the front and it tends to hang a little. I'd be worried it would stretch the plastic where it attaches at the wheel well liner. So, whenever I have my front bumper off for more than a few hours, I prop it up with a soda can or small box or something to take stress off the rest of the bolts that are still in.
Just my 2 cents.
And wtf is wrong with Tacoma? 65% of my in-laws are there! haha
2010 Evo X original Panasonic battery still going but it’s starting to get to that point, still cranks but a lag about 1.2 seconds, I know battery topic has been thrown around but are people still using optima red top? Or the Bosch short stack??
Hello all! So I figured now would be a good time to introduce myself and start a discussion on my next project
I was wanting to modernize the mitsubishi starion /dodge conquest drivetrain and after a little bit of research I decided to try and workout the issues with converting the 4b11...
Is it common for the reverse/back up light to come ON for few seconds then go OFF? Just noticed this after changing them out for LEDs, will change them out for incandescent bulbs and give an update.....
I just thought it was really ODD...
