Much better than stock
I replaced my bent up stock skidplate with this one and it can handle much more punishment than the stock aluminum one. I still managed to bend the part that mounts to the rear just like the stock one but that is about the only damage it has taken. The bottom has a slight dent on it and I'm sure it must've take a good rock hit there. It's like a much better stock skidplate. It is much heavier though.
