I have seen pictures of the Matec sump guard (front skid plate) on other boards, but no place seems to show them on their web sites including Mantec that I have found.

Does anyone know if these are available in the U.S. and from where?

Thanks

I realize this is the LR3 page, but since you're discussing Mantec, can you get the D1 brushguard?

Any update on these? When do you think you will have them in stock? Are they the non-winch model?

Sorry for the slow response Les. I've been away. Sure use the pictures if you want. Here's a couple more.

Step One - Remove old plastic cover

Step Two - Remove old (shorter) rear bolts (no picture)

Step Three - Put the new plate on and attach the new (longer) rear bolts (part of the hardware that comes with the plate)

Hey Les,

Do you guys still have any of these in stock? I'm assuming your the man to ask?

Thanks, I'll try giving a ring sometime this week if the holidays haven't screwed up operations hours too much.

Hey "Boaz" how do you like those tyres? Have you given them a shot off road yet?

Boaz

Sorry for the slow response. I haven't checked in here in a while. The tires are Cooper Zeon LTZs (285/60/18 is the size BTW). Yes, they have gotten extensive off road use, and I think they are great.

Here's a video of them getting some off road use.. :cool:

I had the Nitto Terra Grapplers (same size) before, and like the Coopers just a little better. On road they are not noisy and have a good soft feel, but not too soft. Handling is great for the long road trips when inflated to 40 front and 42 rear. (38/42 is normally recommended) I air them down to ~26-28 when off road. Hope that helps.
