Tesla’s OEM skid plates are made out of fiberboard – which is basically a cardboard composite material. It’s easily susceptible to water damage, swelling and warping if in direct contact with the elements, and rips or tears due to hitting low curbs or driving over rough areas. There’s one in the front and one in the back covering the drive units.

Never again worry about hitting a puddle or bottoming out.
