Has anyone removed this from there car? This thing looks heavy and covers pretty much the whole oil pan area. I'm sure it provides some added rigidity also but more than likely is for added undercar protection.

The skid plate could a few different things, depending on when and where it was installed.
See link: viewtopic.php?f=14&t=207&hilit=skid+plate

The upfitter (KERR Industries) installs the skid plate for our cars as a factory option. You can buy them aftermarket through KERR, Setina, Pro Gaurd. They are only a couple hundred dollars and offer tons of protection.
