You're right, it is an option. I wasn't begrudging the man for making a buck or two. I usually support the cottage industries whenever I can....like when I bought one of Skunkwizards tool boxes after he did a run of 'em. I have it for longer trips.
Didn't mean to offend. I've taken many cost saving tips from this thread and also spent more on my DR than it will ever be worth....just trying to offer a solution to folks, like me, who have to be more budget concious.
And yeah, that's a stout DRZ skid plate. He's popping up on Stromtrooper with a skidplate option too. I'm anxious to see the results.
