    Jim's plate info and pics

    ok
    I think im ready to purchase a plate for the yama-doo SUV SC1500.
    I keep hearing great things about the "jim" plate and have spoke with him about my setup. (very nice guy)

    anyway does anyone have pics of this thing.
    is it extended??
    skeged??
    what makes it sooooo much better then stock?? and what kind of true gains are we talking about.

    got money to drop on this plate or upgrade the charger?? still haven't decided what way im going yet, but 5 bills only get me one or the other this week..

    Well the GPR plate from R&D he takes it and make it have an angle. Then he machines the sides and some other small things. The angle is what gives the most speed. Gets the hull out of the water.

    not that iam aware but, i cannot speak for him on that.. he did a little work to mine basically setting it in there correctly. i did it 3 times wrong.. but, after a little education iam fluent in putting gpr pump shoes in.
