Armor Tech Offroad's Front Skid

This thing is major BEEF! It bolts up easily with the help of a jack and some stands.









The ATO Front Skid has now been trail tested. I really put this thing to the test at the TW Bill Burke 4WD Offroad Adventure. The skid was landed on, scraped, totally abused and all I could see for damage was the need for a new coat of paint.

Kevin is really great to deal with, customer service is great. I would highly recommend this front skid to any one looking for one.

thanks for posting up some pics!!'

as far as pricing goes.. i'm offering up the first 10 at $289 plus shipping as stated...

the main difference you will see between ours and all pro's skid is the material it is constructed out of.. ours is made from 1/4" plate steel which makes it about the toughest front skid available. if you check all pro's website it states that theirs is stamped out of 7 gauge sheet metal which is roughly 3/16" thick. however the thing to keep in mind is that 7 gauge, although it is 3/16" thick isn't as tough as 3/16" plate steel.

This is all I've got as of now. I won't be able to get under for more pics til this weekend, hope it helps.



This is actually the t-case skid but you can kinda see where the front skid ends.

I'm not sure actually. I went to a local exhaust shop with a pic of the exhaust rerouted and asked them to make it look like it.
