I was just wondering if anyone knew what the enhanced skit plate that ford racing is offering is going to look like. Do you think it will be like the one from the Raptor R.

Fits F150 Raptor
Replaces production front skid plate
Added side and center reinforcements
Complete with mounting brackets and hardware
Powder-coated "foundry finish" gray
"Ford Racing" ID, right and left sides
I agree that this should have come standard. Not worth the $500+ asking price, IMHO.

Thanks. So its just wider? When you order the raptor can you add those accessories at purchase.

No, it`s not wider but thicker. You will notice in some photos that the skid plate has some damage, the early photos of the orange truck jumping.

It doesn't matter how stout it is when you have 6000+ lb vehicle landing after a jump. It can and will cause damage to the skid plate, the important thing is did it protect, and in this case it looks like it did. They would have to make one like 2" thick to prevent any bending. I'm guessing the stock on is about 1/4" and the F.R. one is 3/8" (maybe 1/2"??), but I bet either will show wear after hard landings. For "normal" use I dont think any of us will have any probs.
