    enough to get me there
    I can't find the torque spec for the bolts in the FSM.

    What is the torque spec for the four 17mm bolts and the two rear 12mm bolts?

    ATO front skid (need more but icon's might fail if I hang anything else from my truck) All-Pro front bumper thanks to a good deal here and a pesky encounter with a rock or 20, total chaos uppers.
    Anyone know if this skid will work with a all pro bumper? If anyone has this setup could you post a pic?
    Thanks

    I will be buying full skids in July and don't want to spend too much over $1,000 for front to back protection. Is there going to be an ArmorTech competitor to Budbuilt?

    Please post pics if you have them.

    From what I can tell this skid is like the front and mid skid from Budbuilt. Once Kevin finishes the T-case skid it will be bullet proof. Unless you plan and using the entire bottom of your truck to slide up obstacles this skid will take most everything you throw at it.

    Correct me if I am wrong but Kevins skids will be a 2 piece combo. Maybe a gas tank skid in the future?

    actually when finished up it will be a 3 piece set... the front skid, middle skid, and tcase skid. that will cover everything from the front all the way to the rear of the tcase... still not real sure on a gas tank skid.

    the current design will not fit with a drop bracket lift (4.5" or 6") i've been wanting to get with someone who has a 6" kit to make the modifications necessary to make it work properly but havnen't been able to do so yet.

    I have been following this thread for a while. Finally have money and want to replace front skid.

    Have any of your customers had an ARB Gen II front bumper?

    I have the "old style" ARB front bumper (no fog light reccess) and am curous if your nicely designed skid will work with the ARB bumpers.

    Also, on install is in neccessay to remove the two IFS box struts that run from the front frame crossover to the IFS box? The All Pro setup requires that you remove these two "strut bars" (see: https://www.allprooffroad.com/images/stories/Instructions/TacoIFSSkid.pdf ).

    Or, does your skid setup just "bolt on"?

    Thanks, I like what you have been designing. Keep it up.
