Like the rest of our JK skid plate systems, this River Raider Evap armor skid is formed from 3/16" thick steel. It features grade 8 hardware and a simple bolt on installation in the factory evap mounting location, with no cutting required.
Available in bare steel or aluminum or with a black satin finish. Our aluminum skid system weighs approximately 1/2 the weight of our steel skids.
Our aluminum skids, while offering excellent protection, will not stand up to the same level of abuse as our steel skids. Also available with replaceable UHMW Polyethylene skins. UHMW stands for Ultra-High Molecular Weigh Polyethylene and these 3/16" thick panels are specially designed for sliding over rocks. We recommend them with the aluminum skids! Our aluminum skids are made from 1/4" material and will protect your system, but they will get scratched if you wheel them hard so the UHMW protects the aluminum and helps them to slide over the rocks instead of getting your JK skid plate scratched up.
