Trailhawk - skid plates thickness and material

Does anyone have information on the thickness of the Trailhawk skid plates and the material they are made of (AL or steel?)

Thanks

Material is steel, thickness about 4mm.

That's a review from a Chinese automobile website, for your reference.

There are a few after market skid plates you can purchase that are stronger. Here is the one I purchased.

That skid replaces a much weaker, tin-like skid tho. The gas skids, front skids are much more durable than the PTU skid that replaces.

Thankyou

Is this skid plate compatible with 1.5 inch lift kit?

It'll work with G-forces 1" lift kit but not with Daystars lift kit. Put it this way, if the lift kit has spacers to lower the drive shaft bracket then it won't work unless you are willing to do some simple cutting (I've had customers do this to fit it on their daystar lifted Jeep).

I will be releasing a newer version of the skid plate sometime in the near future that will accommodate for the day star lift though.

Looking forward to see the new version.BTW, 2"lift kit is available now, so will it be compatible?
