    Bare with me because this is my first attempt at a group buy....
    I talked to alot of guys at RC about this so i figured i would give it a try and gauge the intrest in doing a GB with Boztec on there rear skid.
    I have sent them an email to see if they will work with us on this. now i just need to show them that we could get a good group of us to be willing to buy.




    If you are interested please pm me with your intent on getting into this group buy :cool:

    Taken from there website:
    [FONT=arial, verdana, sans-serif]BozTec Rear Diff Skid Plate – Specifications
    [/FONT]​
    [FONT=arial, verdana, sans-serif]
    The BozTec rear diff skid plate for the Toyota FJ Cruiser, Tacoma, and 4Runner is built from 1/4" steel, welded inside and out with a 3/4" steel cradle captivating the front of the third member. Two saddle connections are form fitted to the axle tubes, secured with 1/2" U bolts and protect the axle housing out to the spring buckets providing optimal coverage of the rear differential and e-locker as well.

    [FONT=arial, verdana, 'trebuchet ms', 'gill sans', helvetica, tahoma, 'lucida sans unicode', sans-serif]The rear diff skid plate also features a rei
    [/FONT]nforced oil d[/FONT][FONT=arial, verdana, 'trebuchet ms', 'gill sans', helvetica, tahoma, 'lucida sans unicode', sans-serif]ra[/FONT][FONT=arial, verdana, sans-serif]in access port for easy maintenance and can be powder coated to match or complement your FJ Cruiser, Tacoma, or 4Runner.

    Skid plate installation is easy with no special tools required. A floor jack is helpful, but not necessary. For more images of the rear diff skid plate, visit the BozTec skid plate photo page.

    This is the price before group buy:
    Suggested retail pricing: $385.00 (includes primer powdercoating) plus tax and shipping.

    Stuff that makes it easier to run over other stuff.
    I might be down for this, depending on the price. Definitely the best design I've seen for a diff skid on our trucks, hands-down. Might even be a little too beefy for my needs.
