Nice! Been meaning to get to the rear diff skid but I've got too many ideas on the table and some great ones in the works, Haha.

Looks good though!

TBH, the 4mm is a turnoff :/ Too thin for my liking.

Design is on point though.

The factory skid plate is about 4mm. Thicker means heavier. Since Chinese Renegade has only 2.0L engine, the weight might be a big issue to affect power output...

The designer had asked the factory about other lightweight material like titanium alloy and something else, but the price will be much higher.

I have received an early prototype of that driveshaft skid plate from that guy, and the photo shows the later version. It's much thicker and stronger than the factory skid plate.

We call it IRON PANTY
I am interested in drive shaft and rear differential skid plates. Any news about availability?

Testers have reported some minor problems, the manufacturer is working on 2nd gen skid plates. Still need some time.

Hi Tony,

Any information on the rear diff skid plate? I really want some protection there!

You would probably sell a BUNCH!

Happy Trails!

Keep an eye on https://valkyrieoffroad.com/shop/ as they have a new diff skid coming out soon. Saw the teaser, and it covers the entire diff, and then some. @Sgt_Strife best be holding me 1
