when i was going back thru some old threads on ttora about this one thing that stood out to me was the discussion about how the plastics can get gouged and if you dont wash it religiously it can grow mold etc in the gouges...and it seemed like a concern but i was thinking that itd be pretty cool to have a little forest actually growing on the belly of the truck :lol:

It can be a way for us hummer owners to go green. We just have to grow enough plant material to counteract the CO2 emmisions.

And if you can move the plants you've got growing in little pots under your bed to underneath your truck, some of those hippies might become some really good friends..

Teflon would be worthless, as it is a coating and would last all of five minutes. I think most of these type of skids are made of UHMW polyethylene and they are bolted over existing steel plates. These have been around a while, even companies like Fabtech offer it on some of their lift kits.

I looked at that stuff years ago, it's a no-go for heavy vehicles (H2's, H3's...) I would agree that laminating it over areas where you get lots of contact would help you slide over more easily, probably giving you more pulling power (traction) from the tires. However, I doubt it would last very long...

Thanks for sharing this valuable information because soft armor is a tactical assault gear which is used by all army officers,police officers during the time of war.
