Update: it looks like the Blackdog skid plate is now on the Blackdog site

It's about time somebody made a skid plate that works with aftermarket headers with no mods...
It is a full length plate, I will mic the thickness when I get my final production plate. I can say it is at least 3x the thickness of the OEM aluminum plate made by Touratech. I don't have any really good photos but here are two shots of the plate they are using as a template for the production versions which they are building as I type this.

The front has a lot of engine coverage...

The sign is covering it but the plate extends all the way past the Cat on the exaust and is completly flat with no bolt heads showing.
