    HR rear skid is different... wonder if the A-Arms will not go all way down since it's not notch like regular skid on the rear

    HR is cheaper then STRacing Concepts

    thanks!

    I.wouldn't run aluminum. It bends and gets scraped up

    my cousin wanted the blue one, and i wanted the silver because of scratches... but does it really bend underneath? or just the lip like bumper(ish)

    While I love the look of aluminum the skid plates and the bottom A arms are just better left to plastic. They are going to get gouged up, scraped, pitted bent, broken, twisted....well you get the idea. I just stockpile stockers from fleabay chop shops, they are always up for auction 24x7x365 and some sellers have them so cheap, like a complete kit for $7 that its a no brainer. The get rougher than I like, I replace then with the stock that are as noted dirt cheap and toss the old ones. An aluminum skid plate set front to rear is going to set you back every bit of $100. Hmm $7 vs $100. Thats 14 sets of stockers you can but to 1 aluminum set thats going to be trashed the first time you run the truck. Like I said I love aluminum on the truck, just not the part thats going to take a beating, mostly the front and read skid plates and the bottom A arms.

    Drop that $100 on something that will last.

    I was thinking of getting one for the rear only as I have broken a good few stock ones...I'm still undecided on this tho.
    Rock n Rolla !
