    1st is not available yet. Skids are not designed to work with diff drop cuz diff the diff drops are bad news IMO. Sorry

    So no good with a diff drop? What is the wait time if I were going to get a front skid and a transfer case skid?

    No good on diff drop over 1/2" unless you use spacers. IMO diff drop is bad news so I designed skids to have max clearance rather than diff drop clearance

    I forgot to ask, is your truck lifted? If it isn't, Does it even look like it would matter?

    Any idea if the IFS skid would work with an ARB bumper? Any fit issues?

    subd. Any left? I'd be looking at a full set. No exhaust crossover, as I'm running the four-banger.

    One thing I couldn't see, looking through all the snaps on this and other threads, is how the rear of the transfer case skid attaches to the frame.

    Budbuilt, for example, uses a tubular crossmember here. Relentless has integrated some box tubing. How does yours work?

    The rear is bent upward and then back to parallel with frame, it bolts thru the bottom of the frame. There is an additional bend up 90 degrees at the very rear up the skid between the frame rails that give it the strength. The rear skid is wider than most, the idea is that there is a smoother transition off of obstacles with the gradual taper upward and the additional width there is no chance to get hung up between the skid and frame.

    OK, I enhanced the photo from earlier in the thread so I can see both the skid and the dark frame behind it. Now I see what you're saying.
