I have yet to see under a 1.4 BoosterJet but the SGS skid plates fit both the Petrol and Diesel Vitara and S-Cross, I am guessing the Subframe and body mounts are the same

If you go to the link above and click on Picture it shows several detailed photos of the mounting points for you to compare on your Boosterjet

I am getting mine in January was planning to order the protection beforehand. Local dealer has not setup these yet. I'll probably order and wish the best Smile

I ordered the steel ones from Hardman tuning today. My Suzuki dealer will have them installed when my Vitara arrives. I will let you know what happened, hopefully within couple of weeks Very Happy

Theyve had delivery delays (DPD/out of stock), the engine skid plate arrives this week and diff skid in February. I will have them set up on the check up maintenance@2000km since my Vitara arrived I`ll get it tomorrow:).

This is what they told me about the durability:
"Usually it installs to the same position as original one (asked about ground clearance). Slow speed gliding over rocks shouldn’t make any damage except powder coated surface can be scratched. It won’t rust because of powder coated surface."

I had mine installed while back. Forgot to post. Nothing to tell as I have not hit anything yet ;=) It sure made driving a road on the woods used by heavy logging machines less nerve racking.

This is my rear diff guard made by Scut in Romania, from what I can see with the Sheriff installation instructions it is exactly the same item....

Did you buy steel or alloy?

I had an alloy Asfir on my GV1600 but boy did it echo echo echo echo echo

Steel ones, no sound issues. They are from sheriff too.

Actually the package said Grand Vitara / SX4 for the engine bay. For the rear diff, I cant recall.

Wow Grand Vitara and SX4 are totally different confused

My rear diff guard was listed for Suzuki SX4, S-Cross and Fiat Sedici and fits perfect the rear diff guard they had listed for the 2015> Vitara looked totally wrong and I could not see how it mounted to the rear diff, I am still waiting for a response as to how it fits?

Admin wrote:........Sump-Guard UK also offer this unit bespoke to the Vitara rear differential but the instructions do not make any sense on how to fit the skid plate to the rear diff with just 4 x bolts as there is nothing drilled and tapped in the diff housing or mountings??

I think you write a new message and the attatchment is underneath?

I may then be able to move it to a suitable section

Yep I was trying to quick reply. The option is available when you post reply from the bottom. 
I got errors about filesize... I think you need to raise the max filesize? Very Happy

Here are some pictures of the Sheriff ones (even if I bought them from DE). They arrived painted in black but as I was waiting for the delivery of the car, I added some layers of colour for additional rust prevention.

Thanks for posting the pictures, it is surprising how many variations of front skid plates available yet the rear one seems the same from most companies, the lower mounting bolts on your skid appear to also be M10 rather than the M8 on the Scut rear skid plate study

I remember my car was that clean but I had it waxoyled, hopefully it is still that clean underneath but as you can see everything seems to stick to it Sad
