Product FAQs

Why are these not hot-stamped like your other skid plates?

These skid plates are not hot-stamped due to the weight of these trucks. Boron does not come available in such thicknesses needed for the weight of these vehicles so we had to go with thicker, mild steel stampings. All skid plates feature extensive ribbing for strength/rigidity and the underbody skids all include reinforced holes to save weight and aid in cooling and drainage.

I’ve heard horror stories of some aftermarket skid plates blocking off airflow or trapping debris. What makes AEV Skid Plates different?

The difference is in the development, testing and validation that goes into our skid plates. These are not aftermarket skid plates—these are OEM skid plates, developed alongside GM engineers specifically for the ZR2 Bison and AEV Edition programs. We had to follow the same protocols and were subject to all the same testing and validation procedures than any other OEM component would go through.

Why not use aluminum instead of steel to save weight?

The heavier a vehicle gets, the less ideal aluminum gets for a skid plate material. A skid plate made out of aluminum would have to be VERY thick in order to match the strength of a stamped steel skid plate, especially on an HD truck.

Why do you not have a skid plate for the rear differential?

The rear differential on these trucks is so massive, they don’t need additional protection. Additionally, the rear differential cover on these trucks does not extend to the edges of the differential housing, reducing the risk of damage.

What kind of coating is used on the skid plates?

We use a multi-stage, automotive-grade E-coating process on all our skid plates. 

Where are your skid plates manufactured?

AEV Skid Plates are proudly manufactured in the USA.
