Hope you and your family are doing well.
Thank you. Kids have pretty much recovered other than some of the lingering effects. I'm well on my way to being there as well. It totally zaps every ounce of energy. I am used to working 80-90 hour weeks and it is frustrating to sleep all day. lol

I removed my Air Dam last night and I noticed there is no protection from loose rocks on the road under my truck. The engine is completely unprotected!!!!

Does anyone have a part number or suggestion for a basic cheap skid to protect my engine? Check out the image of it wide open.

The interesting thing is, I looked up an under body video of a rebel and it is just as open as my Big Horn. So odd the best Off Road Ram has to offer still doesn't have engine protection underneath. I am unsure if they even sell a factory plastic cover for these.

What do others with the ORP look like?

Time to design a plate and custom make a few.,

I would even go for a plastic skid plate like 90% of cars have today. It works well if you’re not an active off roader
We don’t work with plastic but we will design a thinner less expensive option for people who don’t off road and want light weight.

This is still high up on our list. We are super busy right now and Covid went through our family so that has set us back a little but we should be back to full strength soon.

Getting any closer to this? Pretty much the only reason I check this forum anymore is to see if you’ve finally hit market with this accessory!

Ive got the westin promod bumper installed on mine and there is an optional skidplate that I did too. Its a nice bolt on setup. The only slight issue is the back bolts to the old active valence mounts, not the crossmember, leaving a few inches of gap there. Going to fabricate a filler plate. As far as protecting the engine compartment it works very well. Engine bay and engine stay cleaner now for sure.
