2015+ Subaru WRX Aluminum Engine Under Tray Skid Plate
This aluminum skid plate/splash guard is a direct fit for your Subaru WRX. It replaces the OEM plastic splash guard panel which offers little protection. It offers a built-in trap door for the drain plug for quick oil changes. Unlike many splash shields and skid plates on the market, this also offers ventilation. It comes with new hardware - especially important as this goes ALL THE WAY to your front bumper and doesn't stop at the radiator support - it will replace the stock push clips with speed nuts and bolts. This will give your WRX support on the front bumper while maintaining optimal air channeling under the vehicle with this aluminum splash shield. Test off road in mud and various applications - this skid plate will keep your engine bay clean and protect your vital components.

Fitment is great and extremely solid. Using the factory mounting points makes it very rigid. I wish there were some covers for the side, but I was able to cut my stock cover and use push clips into drilled holes on the new plate.
Nice somewhat light weight. Made for a very easy install. Great item to get.
Pretty happy with the skidplate, looks great and fits perfect. Thickness is about the same as the stock skidplate, but with much more functional coverage and oil pan protection. Reusing the admittedly awesome OEM forged support arms is a great design and makes the whole thing super sturdy. Only thing I'd want to add is an option to extend the protection to the wheel wells like the stock splash shield. Instructions are available in the Customer Service section for the 2015+ WRX if you have any issues with install. Prompt reply when I sent some feedback!
Only reason why I knocked off a point is due to no instructions, otherwise, this is an amazing skid plate. I would definitely recommend using the bolts on the front instead of the push tabs they include as the bolts hold the weight of the aluminum better than the push tabs. Overall, amazing product and I highly recommend it.
Purchased for my 18 wrx. Wanted to retain parts of the splash guard which made installation take a bit longer. Overall I am happy with it and it works great on the dirt roads I go on.
Ordered this skidplate for my 17 WRX because I dented my factory one pretty bad. This skidplate is definitely worth buying! Looks amazing and performs well!
