Default 4 X 4 no undercarriage protection?

I now I only own a sport ram 4x4, but why isn't there any undercarriage protection. All my other trucks came with it, without asking.

Has anyone looked into the plates that protect their oil pan, or transmission, etc.

If so where did you get them? Can the trucks be fitted with them? Is it just a bolt on procedure.

I think it's absurd that my truck has no protection underneath

Joe

I've been researching the same, its not a priority now but will be. The feedback I have read on the OEM skids is pretty poor as far as protection value.
Looking for the same input. The searches here have not come up with complete topics on the subject.

Did you buy a sport for off roading. I didn`y. If I wanted off road , I wouldn`t bought a sport. You can buy the Larimie skid plates that will bolt on with minor modifications

I think they call it the "protection group" Your truck must not have come with it.
Actually these 4th gen rams are so low, I worry more about ripping off the bumper than actually getting far enough up on something to hurt the soft under belly.

Yes you can buy the skid plates and put them on pretty easily.

I don't think the protection package is available on the sports, but I don't see why all that can't be added as its the same truck underneath.
