Application: 2001-2006 Mitsubishi Montero
Replaces: factory plastic "middle" skid plate
Made of 10 gauge Stainless steel with flanged edges, this unit provides significantly more protection than the plastic 'brush gaurd' Mitsubishi offered. Weighing in at 15 lbs, it's as lightweight as we could make it while still being stronger than any skid plate you can get for a gen 3.
Consider the following:
You're 50 miles from the closest road, you've navigated your way into the thick of a trail and you're heading out, provisions are running low but you made it in and you expect to make it out, suddenly a branch or a rock in your path hits the factory plastic pan cover, tearing it away, even worse, your front axle disconnect is now exposed, one more branch or maybe the same one, also makes contact with the disconnect, unhooking your front axle, suddenly you find yourself with only rear wheel drive, attempting a trail fix may or may not result in fixing the disconnect, but why be in this position in the first place? Years of horror stories from folks getting stuck out on trails, some of them our own friends, some of them we've helped to fix while on the trail... Now that's over, our skid plate will protect your vital components giving you the assurance of knowing if you went in, you're certainly going to get back out and you'll never lose 4WD with this plate protecting your drivetrain.

SAE 304 stainless steel
SAE 304 stainless steel also known as A2 stainless steel (not the same as A2 tool steel) or commercially as 18/10 or 18/8 stainless steel, European norm 1.4301, is the most common stainless steel. The steel contains both chromium (between 18-20%) and nickel (between 8-10.5%) metals as the main non-iron constituents. It is an austenitic stainless steel. It is less electrically and thermally conductive than carbon steel and is essentially non-magnetic. It has a higher corrosion resistance than regular steel and is widely used because of the ease in which it is formed into various shapes.
stainless steel has excellent resistance to a wide range of atmospheric
environments and many corrosive media. It is subject to pitting and
crevice corrosion in warm chloride environments and to stress corrosion cracking
above about 60 °C. It is considered resistant to potable water with up
to about 200 mg/L chlorides at ambient temperatures, reducing to about
150 mg/L at 60 °C.
