Looks like they may be a Canadian company? I wonder if the pricing is Canadian or US dollars?

They have different thickness options at the bottom of the page:

http://www.blackpantherskidplates.com/blackpanther_armor_033.htm

But I don't see any pricing difference, so... Wonder what the price is for the good quality ones (3/16") plates? I wouldn't put a 10 Ga. skid plate on my truck; it would crumple up pretty quickly with how I use skid plates...

Pricing looks to be in USD. If you click on the Paypal option all the pricing shows the USD option.

Walmart prices... I wonder if they are Walmart quality. Usually you get what you pay for.

With them being so much less than SkidRow I wonder if they are going to be as good.

So who will be the first to get them to see if they are worth it.

Good question Roger. Hard to tell from their website.

Nix the no address thing. Found it and yes they are in Canada. So much for inexpensive now.

And what is with this?

"So this is the T/C skidplate for the X-terra."

It really bugs me when a company that is making something for a vehicle can not even get the name right. :rolleyes:

Hmmm had to look hard to find that typo on their website but really no reason to condemn their product. It was the only one incorrect.
No reason to slam someones product especially if you havent seen it.

I have met several people that have BP Skids on their Pathfinders and they like them and appear to be good quality made.

3/16 thick powder coated, access/drain holes what more do they have to have?
Built for function NOT fashion. if it fits well and its functional, I'm all for them. [ThumbsUp]

Even with additional shipping cost they will still be cheaper than their competition.
But then again only time and testimonials will tell.

By the looks of the pictures the plates cover the front and mid section. Just wondering if there are any plans for plates to protect the rear and differential.

The picture with the "final plate" written on it was on my truck. I spent a lot of time with Marcel as designed these skid plates and was constantly showing me what changes he was making and why. He put a lot of work and a lot of thought into these and it was obvious to me that he wanted to make a top quality plate at a low price because anywhere you go, skidplates are pretty expensive.

You should have no doubts that the product you'll receive are top quality.

Not very professional or *admin-like* to slam a guy because he won't give you FREE product to do a review on. :rolleyes:

I don't have a set of Marcel's skids yet simply because I don't have the $$ yet, but I WILL once I have the money.

As far as I can see so far through others that DO have Marcel's product, they are top notch and there are NO complaints at all.

He is trying to give us a great product at a GREAT PRICE for a change, instead of overcharging like many (not all) places do.

Instead of slammin a guy who is trying to do something good for the Nissan community, you should be thanking him, or at least buy his plates and make an INFORMED review/comment on it.

I'd like an answer to this too, as I'm sure many would. Or are you going to ban ALL of us? :rolleyes:

Not getting "free" skid plates is not why I am so critical of the product.

First - I was a bit concerned that with the prices they are offering that it seemed a bit fishy. I have found that in most cases if it sounds too good to be true it is. And knowing the spike in steel prices it just makes me curious as to how they are offering such low prices.

Second - The plates will not fit on my Xterra so I would have to find someone close to me to do the review. So what is in it for me again?

Third - Those plates may be big on the Pathfinder side of things (as some have said) but when was the last time you saw a Pathfinder really do any serious offroading?

People may say they love them without actually using them, I on the other hand will wait until they are proven to be good before I shower some new company with praise just because they are making something for a Nissan.

Simple rule about manufactures coming to a board to sell products without permission.
