    If I do it in the same style as the Touratech, it will ONLY mount up to a stock exhaust. The mounting tabs on the d&d will not be strong enough to sustain a hit in my opinion, their mount point tabs are just too small/fragile. It will also NOT mount up and match my custom exhaust. I'll have to come up with an alternative mounting solution for them, although I don't know how I'd do it just yet.

    At least 23 interested/in on facebook, so I'll proceed with this. I'll post pics of the bare prototype once it's done, etc.

    Ok, took the loaner skidplate to the machine shop today, I *might* get lucky and get a possible prototype by tomorrow. I'll set up a page to buy them from if this works out. The one I get tomorrow will just be bare aluminum, just need to see how it looks when it's finished. Current interested headcount is approximately 45 across the 4 places I posted this.

    I need a couple of days to figure out how they will be mounted yet. Also looking into possibly the front engine guard and oil filter cover.
