Hey everyone, I wanted to officially start a thread up here for blem, and discounted items.
As a skid plate manufacturer we occasionally get a plate with minor imperfections such as scratched powdercoat, cut imperfections, or forming imperfections that result in a fully functional but cosmetically imperfect product. These always go super fast so keep an eye out!
To start it off, here is what I've got at the moment...
Full Front Skid Plate- 1/4" bare aluminum. $175 shipped.
Blem- Minor miscut on one bolt hole. Plate will be paired with bare steel secondary plate, with minor front miscut. Once installed both plates will have absolutely zero visible defects.
Standard front skid Plate- 1/4" powdercoated aluminum. $125 shipped.
Blem- No blems, simply have made minor cosmetic design updates since.
Alright I just came across another one of the powdercoated aluminum standard front plates, so I will do it for the same price.
No blem at all, just a slightly older design with satin black powdercoat, where as we use a low gloss texture powder now. Same price on this one as above.
ALSO.... I have an unusual plate available and this will probably be a lucky find to someone.
Long story short... we designed a full skid plate system for border patrol F-150's based on their exact specifications and lost the project due to UPS losing the item during shipment causing us to miss the prototype submission deadline... Therefor, we have since gotten it shipped back and it has been sitting in the shop since.
This is a full setup, that covers from front of engine to transfer case, and is made of a heavy duty powdercoated square tube frame structure with a 1/8" aluminum skid plate attached to it. In essence, this is nearly exactly similar to our normal skid plates with the addition of the welded frame.
I do not have pictures as this is already packaged up, but I will get some if you really would like to see it. Original price was $1000 and I am looking for the first $300 shipped to get it out of our garage.
Alright guys, I got tired of trying to explain this "border patrol" setup so I unwrapped them and took some pics. THESE ARE THE SAME GENERAL DESIGN AS OUR OTHER PLATES BUT AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT SETUP! They WILL sit 1.25" below your frame, by nature of the tube ladder frame, but this does make them crazy strong! And yes the aluminum is lighter gauge than what we normally sell, because the steel structure is providing the strength and spanning the distances, the plate itself is just a smooth surface to slide on, and not providing any structure! This is an extremely fancy setup, albeit a little unusual compared to our normal products. Please PM me if you want it. Also, this will only work on the 5.0L because the ecoboost intercooler clearance is a bit too close on this one!
Oh and did I mention we have have over 3 grand into the design of this thing!!?
