<IMG SRC="smilies/clown.gif" border="0"> Put it on and see if it works. Modify to fit. I don't think it's going to keep much water and mud out, in fact I think it will hold mud!!! <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0">

It's not a skidplate, he's talking about the "splash plate" pan thingy that is bolted to the frame above the front suspension. I still have mine on, and will keep it when I do crossover, will just plasma away the parts that get in the way. It really does help keep mud out of the engine compartment.

although somewhat cheesy, yes the 84 did come with a louvered skid plate. it may not provide rock rash protection, it does help keeping mud and water off the engine (dist.) my profile also says al. you western guys gotta try this southeast wheelin'.

for those who don't know those splash guards make a huge differance ween it comes to getting mud in your engine compartment. I took mine off for some reason (don't remember now) and didnt end up putting it on again, I realized after the first trip how great of a job it does. Before I would get a little mud up on the firewall nowthe entire engine bay is coated
