yes it's aluminum. it's about 10-12 pounds lighter than stock. makes oil changes much less annoying too... :)


it can be sourced from Hunter Holden in Australia.....I'm not sure where he got one already in the US though. GM parts direct lists the only VALID part # as the steel stock one.

dammit....lucky....


That stupid freight charge is ridiculous. It cost me $125 bucks just to SHIP my JHP lip spoiler over. :bang:

hijack but on topic :)... my free skidplate. it's probably stronger than aluminum and the main reason that i did it was to ventilate the engine bay area. i had my son (who works in tool and die) bandsaw the holes...

I like that Idea. My brother has plenty of connections with a tool and die shop. Something I may be able to task him with.
