    So I've been getting alot of questions lately about the front skid. If we can get a decent number of people together I can go ahead and get another batch made up. Right now i'd say it would be 3 or so weeks from time of order to shipment...

    Here's what I'm looking at. Running the same $289 plus shipping as the intro sale price. This time gonna do them bare (unpainted) as they seem to get all scratched up by the delivery guys anyways..... guess 70lbs is to heavy for them! :D

    If your interested/ ready to order start a list and when we get a few people together I'll get them going.....

    note: if you guys can manage to get 15 or more I can discount even more......

    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.
    Can You post this in the group buy section so we can get some hits? I am getting close to picking some skids up and yours look sick!
    Now for my dumb question, do yours work with a stock bumper? I will be getting a all pro or CBI bumper in the next few months. I know you said it works with the all pro but want to make sure it will work with my stock bumper till I decide on a front.
    Thanks.

    Can you post some pics of your transmission skid? thought I saw you had something but could not find the thread. Do you need to change the exhaust with that transmission skid?
    Thanks!

    you mean the tcase skid... there are a few pics of it up somewhere.. and yes the exhaust crossover must be rerouted to behind the tcase. this allows the skid to remain flat instead of having a big dropped section to accommodate the exhaust.

    Found one, thanks. However I could not tell if it attaches to your front skid or not. Just want to be sure I can cover the transmission pan as well. I assume as hard as you wheel you must have it figured out.
    Is anyone else interested in the group buy on these skids?
    If it's just a few people what do you think the turn around time would be?

    yea there are actually 3 different skids to cover everything with. there is the front skid which covers back to the rear ifs crossmember. then the tcase skid covers from the transmission crossmember back to the rear of the tcase. the final skid is the transmission skid which covers everything between the other two skids...

    So what is the total price for all three skids? Going to hit up the exhaust shop to see how much the project would set me back.
