i would be interested in EA81 for 85 Brat with 4 inch lift. Are you going to allow access to the oil drain plug, and oil filter?

somehow create a "hole with reinforcement collar" on the plate and thru the hole you could get a socket extension to reach the drain plug straight on.

Depending on price and my fundage when the parts are ready, I'd be interested in lifted and stock EA81 plates.

my 82 with 2inch lift. dont care if its pretty, would like your logo cut into it like the lift blocks for the struts. and dont want openings for drain and filter.

i rather drop the skid plate to do that every 3 months then not and drop a engine.

EA81 with EJ22 and 6inch SJR lift and EA81 with EA81 and 4inch SJR lift would be my choice skids. Possibly also an EA82 with EJ22 and SJR 3inch lift.

well, i ended up using the stock skid plate, with a fabb'd cross bar welded to front of the plate, and rear slightly bent. rear attached like stock, front welded bar attaches to the front pushbar lower bracket via bolts. all this on a 4" lift brat.

Any update on this? I'm looking for a skidplate Ea81 4inch lift. Anyone else have ideas? I've heard of using a tachoma skid plate

I want one for my 2009 WRX. They are already being mass produced but pricing is rather ridiculous at over $350 each.
