    Just wanted to gauge interest in a group buy on any and all of our Tacoma skid plates. If we do this we will offer the full package.... Front, Transmission, T-case and Gas Tank skids. Not sure what the discounts will be just yet but as always the more people the better deal we can do. I'm working out details right now with a new supplier and am hoping to be able to offer a killer deal on these if it works out.


    Edit: I added poll for you guys to vote in just to make it easier for me to tally up. Thanks!!!!

    Depending on the deal I'm in. I was looking into BudBuilt but if the price is right I'll get these. Whippersnapper, from what I was reading you do need to reroute. I think Buds you would need to also though but they provide washers to get the spacing to run without rerouting. What I am wondering is if you can do the same with ATO.

    Thanks for the feedback so far guys!! As far as the exhaust goes, right now the only option we have requires rerouting the exhaust crossover. It's a pretty straight forward thing for any local muffler shops to do, or you can go all out and get the Dough Thorley crossover pipe which fits as well. I've been meaning to offer one that will fit with stock exhaust but just haven't found the time to get it worked up yet. As for the gas tank skid for a regular cab, that's the only model I haven't fitted one to yet and unfortunately I don't have one local to work with so I have no idea on how to work it out.

    Kinda figured there was no way around rerouting for these skids. I was planning on getting the AT2525xl anyways. So I'll just have the shop do it when they install.

    What's the cost on the gas tank skid?

    I have an all pro front bumper and their IFS skid. If I just get the t-case skid and transmission skid will those work with the all pro IFS skid? Seriously considering this if so.

    Thanks

    Typical cost on the gas tank skid is $215. I've had a few guys run our trans and t-case skids with an all pro front, however it takes a little bit of work on your end to get them to bolt up. I believe it required drilling out a few holes, and it's not a perfect matchup.

    Thanks for the quick response.

    If you had any more information as to exactly what's involved and how to do it I'd love to hear it.

    I'm guessing it's the same with the Relentless Fab front bumper too?

    No I was referring to it mounting to an all pro front skid.

    Our front skid works just fine with every front bumper we've tried thus far, I know for sure it fits fine with all pro, relentless, arb, and shrockworks. Not sure about any other though.
