    Most of the cool trucks I see here in AZ don't run a fron't skidplate . They do however run thicker tie rods etc . /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Comp buggies with hydro steering (like "Tiny" & "Scrapper") usually have some sort of mount for the steering ram that acts a bit like a skid plate, but that's the only example I can think of.

    Trail-grading axle skid plates are used on show trucks. Get a rocker-knocker bar and be done. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Good qwestion... /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    I think that is the slang, it's a super heavy duty tyrod. Makes the axle tube look small... IIRC. I'd start there... /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif
