Progard rear plastic skid plate?

I had one on my marauder back it the day, helped with the rear lower sag. Does anyone no if they are still made, if not any substitute for them?

Thanks

Mine is still attached and happy after a decade. I'd be happy to make paper templates and send them in cardboard tubes if anybody decides to make their own from sheet ABS.

Doubtful it is available with crown vic police cars being dicontinued for over 5 years now, as that is where they were designed for. Call or email Progard, they don't sell direct but can give you fleet suppliers in your state that used to sell them.

I bought 3 last year. One for the car that got rear ended, another for the new car, and a spare. Check with Pro-Gard to find a distributor, they do not sell direct to customer. My local distributor is a gun shop that supplies equipment to police departments. The part number is not listed in the latest catalog. I don't know if it was old stock or made-to-order. There is a thread somewhere which has the part number.

ProGard

The install instructions are attached for the ProGard skid plate. Maybe it will help someone.

Hmm I wondered what those were and where they came from. My MM has it under the trunk to the rear bumper, there are small panels on the front bumper just before tires. I was wondering why the Blue I had didn't have them and this one did.

The front ones are factory installed, and as I recall help divert air for cooling.

The oem marauder ones are the same as the 07 and newer CV cop cars, maybe even the same as the MGM

My DTR ones were broken up front, pulled some from a few newer cop cars and they were identicle At the time I tried to buy new, marauder were obsolete and the CV ones were expensive

Does anyone know if these come with the "brackets" to attach them? I recall a member here sold a better kit with mounting brackets....


Also would be neat to paint the the godshead logo on these... so when car is on rack....
