How well does an aluminum skid actually hold up!? It can’t be great.

If you are treadlightly type driver, go alumnium. If heavy on throttle, well armored other spots down low, and with very good rock rims/rings to support this. then steel. MHO

I get it on the treadlightly. But event then every one will bottom out from time to time. I just question weather it would get punctured or not. Maybe a sacrificial poly layer would be good for these types of skids.

The skid plate is for the 4dr , As far has how the alumimum holds up We have been beating on our JK's aluminum pan for Years and recently replaced the skins just cause they didnt look nice with all the scratches .

Thanks for getting back with me on it. I have always wondered how well they would hold up. I know my evo skids are all kinds of mangled up and just assumed the aluminum ones would be less durable. Any images of the old skids before you all removed them?
