    Would the Skid Row Transfer Case Skid fit with your skids?

    I am rocking the front skid plate (very very similar design to these, just without the break under the radiator and I can lift both front wheels off the ground with a bottle jack from anywhere on the skid underneath.

    VERY sturdy and well worth the money guys I'd buy a set from him but I already had one before his group buy came out. Great design.

    I could make you one that would work. It would stop at the transmission cross member like the skid row trans skid. I will offer 2 transmission skid designs.

    But you still need a transmission skid! :D

    I added a different transmission skid that ends at the rear transmission cross member. It would allow you to bolt up a transfer case skid like skid row has in the future. This gives you 2 options of transmission skids: with a partial transfer skid or no transfer case protection.

    On the TRD cutout(from:what have you done) I really wanted that because it looks badass, but I prefer function over cosmetics. Just a thought, would be to make it a smaller cutout of the TRD or just a badass [​IMG]
    because it would match my truck!

    But I'm very excited for this deal either way!

    I think you should do sliders next!

    tires,shell, wet okoles,
    So I do have a few questions.
    1.With the cut out is there a plate behind it or is it just open . Was kinda hard to tell from the pictures.
    2. Would you be able to make a steering rack brace like some of the other designs?
    3. Why don't you make a prototype transfer case skid and gaug the interest? Maybe a weld together diy version if it would be to difficult for production.
    4. Would there be a issue with just cutting the extended transmission skid if we were to make our own transfer case skid ?
    Thanks.

    1. The cutout is open.
    2. Steering rack brace? The transmission skid completely covers the rack.
    3. The transfer case skid is a lot of angles and drilling holes in the frame and things like that. Welding wouldn't be necessary. I don't have time. I'm working on a rear bumper and sliders.
    4. You could cut the skid pretty easily if you have a band saw or cutoff wheel.

    I haven't received as many orders as I would like, so I think these are my first and last product I'll offer. Too much time and not enough interest.

    Do you have an accurate timeframe of how long it would take to get these?

    Might be interested if I could know I could get them before (possibly) heading to Moab.

    I can't say for sure, but it takes about a week to 10 days to get them through production. Then 3-5 days for Fedex.
