protecta skid plates?

Why hasnt protecta or anyone else reissued the protecta style skid plates? I much rather have a sturdy aluminum skid than the flimsy plastic skid. The protecta I have has saved me quite a bit of damage and is starting to show its age but there aren't any good replacement options available.

Yeah I think Protecta was the only one who ever made anything like that, I picked up 2 way back when. Man I haven't heard the word Protecta in a long time

If interested PM me, I'll sell it.

Guess I'll keep mine, and finish polishing it out.



I can use it on my next build.

I have never weighed it compared to stock, but I am sure it is not much more weight than stock.
