    I'm not big on mods as I don't do any hectic trails and the Navara is mainly used for overlanding but the sump is quite vulnerable to obstacles. I ordered a Stofpad sump guard, fitted it myself and I'm very happy with the product.

    2.5mm aluminium checker-plate will do the job. Easy to cut with a small grinder with a 1mm cutting wheel.

    Bending could be an issue if you don't have a flat edge but a set of G-clamps and a table edge and a rubber mallet can do most bends.

    I have been wondering the same thing, why does one require 5mm aluminium plate on these. Why could vastrap or 3-4mm mild steel galv and ruberize not do the same job?

    5mm will require more force to bend/damage, just to supply some extra protection underneath?

    I would not recommend an aluminum plate period. Aluminum is soft and will easily be pierced. Spend the couple of bucks and get something that will give you piece of mind. 3mm mild steel is as thin as I would want to go...

    And it's held up extremely well, considering that it's taken more bangs than a Hillbrow hooker.

    No cracks, just a few dents.
