courtesy nissan online will have them pretty inexpensive. check them out online. shrock is better but when you're on a budget, you could double up some of the oem skids for less than a quarter of jim's stuff. i doubled a few and they have done all right.

Saturday a buddy of mine took a softball sized rock to the
oil pan on his Pathy & punctured.
Luckily we had liquid metal to seal with us.
We lucked out when a guy in a F150 had 2 qts of oil to add to our 4.
we got it out of the woods & he drove 120 miles home.
Mostly worried about the radiator & especially my plastic gas tank.
OEM would probably do.
It's amazing how expensive it is to ship the stock plates. I got an initial quote from UPS and Fed-ex based on rough size and weight, they told me $50 to ship ground. After I had them boxed up and already sold, I took them to ship them and it ended up being $98 to ship. The gas tank skid causes them to be an oversize package, even though the entire box didn't weigh more than 30 lbs.
Any way, be that a warning to anyone who tries to ship their OEM skids, the gas tank skid costs a lot.
Not to change the subject, but I sell a lot of things on eBay and often times have over sized packages. I've found that FedEx ground tends to be a little cheaper when shipping oversized ground packages. Just thought I'd share that with you all...
