Have you seen pics of the forge tray or anything? Maybe a thread with more info? How far back does it go and how much does it cover? Is the difference between these two trays enough to justify a difference of $200. I need to get one for when I start laying frame to protect that hose that people keep damaging which leads to engine issues.

It seems like the only difference is that it covers a tiny bit move around the piping.

Forge $310

I didnt even know about the cobalt one ... the Forge one was the only one I have seen so thats why I mentioned it. I would love to find some installed photos of the Forge. Let me look and see if I can find anything.

Just an FYI from a service point... those things are a HUGE PITA. Not saying not to get one... just know. If you are servicing your car... it's gunnah get old... As someone who has to deal with that stuff. It's totally frustrating... it costs you more $ too.. as it's extra time to pull stuff off to do the simplest of things sometimes

Im talking about the ones under the engine.. not the ones in the middle of the car like the GP

Oh okay, so it goes way further back. More than I need, but probably WAY better if you're doing it for aerodynamics

Certainly looks like it. Good eyes. That would be pretty sick.

they are for sure ... I use to have one on my Evo and it was a PIA to do an oil change, but they are great for protecting the underside of the car esp if tracking, and add good aero.

2x filister head screw 51 71 2 752 360
20x nut 51 16 1 943 122

Enjoy

Edit: nevermind...I should read a thread to the end bevor replying
Im going to be ordering these up do I really need all the additional hardware and brackets? or is that stuff already on the bottom of my car?

Total for everything comes to $219.72 from here:
