Reordered after they just mysteriously refunded my points and CC payment last week. I originally ordered this back in October.

Anyone who has installed this have any feedback? (Ie weird wind noise, etc)
If zero downside ..aside from adding 15lbs to car..I’m thinking about doing it too. (I have a ‘21 ST)

thanks

Zero issues, which is to be expected. Had an oil change knocked out last week with the skid plate on and it was completely uneventful as well.

I ordered mine a month ago with Fordpass points. Still nothing. No answers when I call about it either.

Been on the fence to ordering one. Does this skid plate allow for easier access to the oil pan for oil changes, or do you still need to remove the entire thing when doing an oil change?

There is a cutout to access the oil drain plug.

Well I got a call from Ford saying the part is backordered till 3rd quarter. At least they confirmed not to cancel the order and I will wait. Seems like such a simple part to b in such short supply hahahaha

Too funny. I’ve been waiting about six months so far. Ordered then they cancelled out of blue. Ordered again, holding breath

It only remove the carpeted cover under the oil drain plug.
Hey regarding the trans pan clearance, I have a PPE pan which is about a quarter in lower than oem. Would there be enough clearance for the skid plate?

Didn’t even get the courtesy call. They just canceled. I ordered back in Nov 23. This shouldn’t be an issue. Clearly no demand for these otherwise it could have been made to order.

After being canceled from Ford after a 4 month wait I re-ordered from CSP racing on March 7. They keep pushing it off. I was just told this week that it’s expected mid June. Of what year I don’t know.

I ordered back in the beginning of April when the Ford accessories website listed the part as being back in stock. Still not shipped and Ford can’t give an answer as to why it hasn’t been fulfilled.
