I would like to install gas tank and rear diff plates also for peace of mind in an off road tripsWhile I use a Jsport one, I drilled it for the "U-Bolt" mod which instead of the 4 or so puny bolts up front it uses U-bolts on the front subframe. Best thing about the NoLo one is that he has his skid plates pre-drilled for that mount as an option.
I also like the rear diff skid I have from NoLo and have to mount the gas tank one still but have that too.
Funny thing, while I got the front skid for off road use, when our Pilot was about a year old a big rig tread hit our undercarriage and caused a trans fluid leak. I wish I had the skid on back then lol
If you go off the beaten path every now and then, the skid plates are sacrificial and will give you a second chance when you accidentally or intentionally bounce off something. The VTM-4 components are quite spendy to repair / replace and most everything is naked down there (vulnerable). Some skid plates for the Pilot may need to be custom or DIYI would like to install gas tank and rear diff plates also for peace of mind in an off road trips
Pikes Peak & Moab?I installed the NO-LO design front skid plate, gas tank, and the rear diff. The quality is very good easy to install, quality workman ship and American made. I am starting a trip to New Mexico, Colorado and Utah next week and I will let you know how they all work out.
Check out this instagram video clip, about 1min in but it is about the mod. NoLo skid plate now has the holes pre-drilled for themI don't know about the U-Bolts installed. Can you describe what you do and size of the U-Bolts that you used?
