1st Gen skid plates

Group Buy

BATCH CLOSED- New buy open: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/buy...ml#post4267378

Here are some pics of the 4 that shipped out this round.







First gen skids are finally here!
95.5 to 2004 Tacos and 96 to 02 4Runners

I have finally been able to come up with a design to replace the first gen stock skid plates.

Like my 2nd gen skids, I do offer custom cuts in these skids. You can see examples of my work at www.metalmiller.com.

The Product:

The design is a solid 1 piece of 3/16 carbon steel that is designed to take a much heavier beating than the stock skids. This will work for 95.5 to 2004 model Tacomas and 96 to 02 4Runners.

There are bends on the sides to add rigidity to the design to give it more strength. (Hence the wings you see on the sides)

Installation:

Simple bolt on design, just unbolt your stock skids and bolt this bad boy on. New Grade 8 bolts are provided to compensate for the thicker plate.


Pricing:

Bare skid: 250
Custom Cut: add 20
Shipping: 50
Powdercoating: add 60

I'll take 10% off once I get 5 orders and I can go up to 15% once we reach 10. It will be up to you guys whether we wait for the 10 or close at 5.

Note: the discount does not apply to shipping. They arent very flexible on their charges

Purchasing:

I have begun a list of people interested in purchasing this skid.
Here are some pics of the prototype mounted before the design changes were made to the drawing. You can see the coverage this skid has. I have recently added a few more pictures.







Example of the Metalmiller M in black powdercoat

Skid with lights mounted behind cuts. PM Drunknsloth for lighting details

NEW PICS Final design minus the oil drain hole.




























September Batch Orders:
1. Biggie (no coat, No cutout)
2. Hayabusa3303 (no coat, TACOMA cutout, No backplate)
3. 01Tac0ma (no coat, unattached white backplate)
4.Scwerks
5. Filled

People interested in waiting for the 15% discount
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.

The pricing is just above the pics. Here it is again anyways, I feel like it's pretty fair since it's replacing 2 stock skids.

Pricing:

Bare skid: 250
Custom Cut: add 20
Shipping: 50
Powdercoating: add 60

I'll take 10% off once I get 5 orders and I can go up to 15% once we reach 10. It will be up to you guys whether we wait for the 10 or close at 5.

Will this skidplate work for 4cyl 2wd? Does it protect oil pan completely?

Here is a pic of a TACOMA cut out that I'm doing in one of the skids. This skid will be waterjet cut since the design has bit more detail than the the TRD cut
