Plastic Bash Plate

Just a quick post. I thought my 07 had a metal bask plate. Turns out its plastic. Did they come with plastic bash plates? What is considered a decent one from which manufacturer. Thanks.

That is stock, and it is not a skid plate. It is an emergency grain shovel kit in case you are caught in a wheat avalanche. You supply the handle.

Inexpensive and functional is the common Richochet plate, sold by many,

It works for all years for about $100.

MSR also makes one for a similar price, but I think the Richochet is more functional.
