At the end of the run the rear box which hangs down pretty low on a Dolly 1500 or 1850 had taken quite a beating with a big flat dented on the bottom LH corner and quite a bit of scrape wear from the roads.

Not wanting a repeat this year with the risk of the rear box wearing through I decided to put some protection in place.
Initially my thoughts were to make up some kind of skid pan. But then I thought lets just get some giant exhaust clamps big enough to go around the box which is a round profile. The clamps can then be sacrificed to take the wear.
