When a stock skid plate fails, it can rip the rear shock tower mounting screws out of the chassis, causing a catastrophic failure usually resulting in the rear end sailing in a different direction than the rest of the truck. With RPM skid plates mounted, that problem will be a thing of the past!

RPM Slash skid plates are completely redesigned, making them stronger and much more durable. Our unique design 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 a hole 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 Slash Rear Skid Plate 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.

As a final design touch, we added four thick skid rails on both the front and rear skid plates which reduce sliding friction while improving the overall durability of the skid plates and the truck. At the tail end of the rear skid plate, a skid rail runs from side to side to protect the lower transmission screw and rear bumper mount while providing a smooth transitional surface.

    I wasn't completely faithful about the pin system that holds the steering bellcranks but I was wrong. Pin system works well as does everything else, like most rpm stuff the fit and strength are the main advantages and this product lives up to that.
