Hey guys,
Just trying to get a feel if there is enough interest in getting front skid plates made. I work with Rally Armor on these as they manufactur them and we sell them. They are willing to make skid plates for us for Legacy/Outbacks but need a firm commitment from 5 buyers before they start making them. Shoot me a PM/IM/E-mail if you would be interested. You can check out the WRX ones on http://AZPInstalls.com

Skid plates, eh... Actually what I'd really be interested in would be a small pushbar/lightbar, like the ones that were made for the Brats and older DL/GL's. Have any requests for those yet ? :D

We have gotten requests for ones similar to http://www.ecb.com.au we are working on something but no mounting ideas as of yet. It's in the works, just trying to get it tested before marketing it.

Now THAT is what I'm talking about! Thanks for the link, hope you drum up support for the rally skidpads. Maybe Subiegal would be interested...

I still have a Primitive Racing 1/8" skid plate on my 99 outback and it has survived quite a beating. If you offroad your subie, you need something similar.

It's actually pretty nice on the road too, because the engine bay stays cleaner. I've even encountered a hydroplane effect when hitting deep puddles instead of the bog-down-and-break-something-going-under-water that usually happens.

Get a skid plate! For convenience I suggest one with a hole cut out near the oil pan drain bolt.

Does a skid plat also cover the oil filters? WHAT about 1 gen legacy, all out legacys have oil pan dents from rocks when we have gone 2 tracking.

Thanks! Ours are estimated to be $50 or so less than primitive's for the legacys.

Have no fear! I'm picking up a '94 legacy shortly, once I get it we'll be working on a 1st gen one as well.
