I stand by my previous position of "rugosities on skid plates are to be avoided where possible".
LOL

That's fine and I agree to an extent but some people don't want to spend the money to re-route and don't want the hassle, yet they want more protection on the t-case.

It might hang you up but I seriously doubt anyone will ever rip off a cross over drop down.

And to be fair, if they did it wouldn't leave them walking. Just a loud drive home.

I have an overcommitment problem It's not unreasonable that other people would have different stopping points from guys like you and I.

To get back to the discussion at hand: I would advise the OP to shop on shipping cost. Since most any of the aftermarket front skids are gonna meet his needs, I'd look for one with possibility of pickup.

Another photo of yours:


Here's the damage from mine. I hit the skid near the passenger side bolt, the front driver's LCA mount/skid (Hardest hit I've ever taken and all that's there is a little dent in the skid), and the rear passenger LCA mount. Looks like I should go for some better skids, too...now to find someone who does pre-tacomas.

Hahaha. Thanks, seriously though I could probably drop off the skid on my way down there, or at least shipping should be cheap to just jump over the mountains

That's a bad ass rig! I'd be down to help you design something off of my truck but the trip over to Reno is a little far, but not too bad. I could probably work something into my schedule, though. Let me know!
sorry for the thread jack...free bump!
