i know this pretty self explanatory but why dont foci have a skid plate protecting the open bottom of the engine compartment?? you drive on some of the roads in n.h. or vermont that are unpaved you hit a rock your done.

No cars do.... Rally ones do.

Most cars have a splash guard... but they're worthless when it comes to large rocks, etc.

You just need to go faster over them
You can make or get a skid plate made if you want to do jumps or other stuff....

i dont think any CARS came with skid plates....but i know alot of cars that come with tranny guards or supports or whatever...the one on me escort was like 3 inches wide and about 3/4 of an inch thick....and it worked,,,,,iv jumped it a good couple feet in the air and never hit motor,,,,i was kinda bummed when i noticed the focus didnt have one...oh well,,,guess its time for the torches and heavy guage almuminum plating

the stock focus can get about 4-6 feet in the air!! a skid plate isn't that hard to build.
