Torsion Skid Plates

I did some serious wheeling yesterday. I smashed up the undercarriage pretty good on a 3' waterfall ledge. My torsion bar skid plates both have huge gashes in them and I'd like to repalce them if I can. I haven't crawled under there yet because it's over 100 degrees and the pavemnt is super hot. Anybody know if I can repalce those or what not? Thanks

On a good note. I hit my sliders hard and they held up excellent!

I never thought I'd be able to smash them up. The trail usually isn't this bad but in parts where it crosses washes huge aounts of dirt were moved to reveal large bolders and ledges. Of cours it's a 25 mile trail and the more difficult parts (where I ran into issues with my long wheelbase) are 15-20 miles in. After watching the Jeeps just crawl up without any issues, now I want a Jeep. It won't happen though, I don't like Chrysler/Dodge and I need a truck bed.

Thanks anyways Evan.

yeah mine have been beat up as well, they are surprisingly strong. I would think you could buy those plates somewhere.

Here is one of mine, it is hard to tell but it is all tore up

They aren't hard to tear up since they hang down so low. Both of mine are sctatched up real good and i know atleast one of them is dented pretty good.
