    Would probably be in for one too...

    ^Sorry no plans for a group buy.

    The price has remained the same for more than five years. I will have to increase the price eventually. Just a heads UP :eeek:

Felt like the car bounced up like a foot from the impact. Pulled over real quick to make sure everything was alright. Look under the car and the plate doesn't even have a dent in it. Plate has plenty of scrapes from the year of abuse but I was expecting a little bit of bowing at least from this hit. Blown away by the strength of this thing.

    Right on, another oil pan saved! Happy motoring.

    IX plate - I'm having a real problem coming up with something that is both functional and practical. I have to put the project aside for a bit but stay tuned.

    No real news but I have started drawing up a worksheet to make sense of a project like this. I will post some sort of an update in the next few weeks.

    You will never regret it, worth every penny.

    Thanks, :grin:

    Thanks, Chris and Matt! I would love to get a hold of an IX for a couple days.

    We may need to start another discussion. What is needed/wanted out of a IX skid plate?

    Going to be m30b35 swapping, but it only has m20 right now... but I just installed Ground Controls.

    Thanks!

    I'm not sure it needs one but I want to get one anyway.

    Also we should get a heat sheid made for the p/s axle. That would be huge!
