Thanks man, any pics are fine, just wanted to get a general idea of how snug these fit up against the body and how far back they cover. I'm assuming all bolt points are countersunk? And that mounting hardware comes with?

They bolt straight to the cross members, so the thickness of the plate (1/4" or 5/16") runs from the end of the factory skid plate that covers the oil drain all the way back pass the transfer case and stops a little bit past where the gas tank skid begins.

Just dug through the thread... here what they looked like before I purposely beat on them.

I'll take a photo of what they look now, some time today (currently raining outside). Keep this in mind Design has since been improved. These were never powder coated. I purposely tested these skids well beyond any normal conditions.

Wasn't asking you yo, that was pointed generally to see if any of our guys wanted to step up, and toss out some pics and an honest review. May help or hurt your business, I don't know there, but it helps the community which is the point to begin with and helps those of us considering buying a set. I like how snug against the belly these sit. My OEM UCP with the thor upgrade panels is solid as all hell and I don't worry about it taking a beating, but not having a rancho or tuff country lift, it bugs me a bit at how low it hangs. That being said maybe that's better, not that it needs it as it doesn't flex, but for air circulation? I dunno. I'm no expert, I just figure height, tight, and flat oughtta slide better. Just my brain reasoning out pros to your UCP. I'd like to see some honest pics and reviews from your customers on this..

Well hopefully if you end up getting a set, I can convince you to post up about them. After having seen those photos where you sank your Alpha, I think my skid plates would have certainly helped out in that situation. By chance is this why your interested in these things?

The people with the earlier versions from Hunner and tomp all swear by them. great investment if you wheel your Hummer. I am sure these will work very well for those that don't have any already on their trucks. I would highly recommend them.

Have u taught about making a set that is compatible with the rancho lift kit...I know u have custom mod your sliders so they work better with the 1" body lift.

And here's my abused skidplates I haven't bother to swap with my new ones I have in my garage. Again these are the pre production version one, never painted or powdercoated.
