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.

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

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.
