You never had any protection from the factory!
This adds a transmission skid plate protection to your gen 2. Able to withstand more than your vehicle
Made of 3.5 alu, 3mm CRS, or 3.5mm American Stainless Steel with flanged edges, this unit provides protection Mitsubishi never offered. Weighing in at 15 lbs, it's as lightweight as we could make it while still being stronger than any skid plate you can get for a gen 2 Mitsubishi Montero on earth. The Rear mounting flange will need the holes drilled, Two exist already and will allow you to mount the skid. The other two provide ultimate fastening . Mounting hardware is not provided, We suggest a simple eBay rivnut tool for a clean install with m8x1.25 bolt, but a simply using a nut on the back of the cross member is how some have mounted it. If you can't figure out how to mount this, check our forums, if you're not able to do it, pay a professional. Be cautious of your trans pan while drilling holes.
Still curious about the install? Brad and Andrew from Auto Off-Topic do a great job of covering the install of the mid and transmission skid plates in this video.
SAE 304 stainless steel
SAE 304 stainless steel also known as A2 stainless steel (not the same as A2 tool steel) or commercially as 18/10 or 18/8 stainless steel, European norm 1.4301, is the most common stainless steel. The steel contains both chromium (between 18-20%) and nickel (between 8-10.5%) metals as the main non-iron constituents. It is an austenitic stainless steel. It is less electrically and thermally conductive than carbon steel and is essentially non-magnetic. It has a higher corrosion resistance than regular steel and is widely used because of the ease in which it is formed into various shapes.
stainless steel has excellent resistance to a wide range of atmospheric
environments and many corrosive media. It is subject to pitting and
crevice corrosion in warm chloride environments and to stress corrosion cracking
above about 60 °C. It is considered resistant to potable water with up
to about 200 mg/L chlorides at ambient temperatures, reducing to about
150 mg/L at 60 °C.
