    anyone have a pic of the budbuilt ifs skid installed? I want to see the bottom and know how far back the skid plate goes. does it go back to the cross member where the driver side header comes across to meet the passenger side header?

    Thanks

    Here's a picture of the full set. You can kind of gauge where the front skid ends until someone that has them chimes in.

    ok thanks. so that is the combo set that is $575? (IFS skid, the bellypan, and rear crossmember) ???

    does the ifs skid include the plate that has the oil drain hole in it? or is that the "bellypan skid"

    Yep, it is his setup but the only thing custom about it is that he had the boxes added to clear the diff drop that he had. Other than that the skids are the same. I don't have the skids but it looks like there is a oil drain hole for the center skid. But yes, call Bud and ask him for the details.

    Those are the three pieces you get in the kit and you can also purchase the gas tank skid.

    I'm seeing $725 on his site, where are you getting $575? That's a pretty attractive price.

    Yeah, you're looking at around $700 for Bud's skids. Trust me -- they're worth every penny! :thumbsup:
