    Ryno All Terrain Products is at it again.... I am offering a group discount on my skid plates for 1st gen Tacomas and 3rd gen 4Runners. I will run this group buy until April 30th. A $250 deposit is due April 30th. The rest can be paid when the order is ready to ship.


    RACK COVERAGE SKID: Included in purchase is an extended IFS skid plate that covers the steering rack and all necessary hardware to install.
    Weights:
    1/8" = 42 pounds
    3/16" = 60 pounds


    3 PIECE SET: Included in purchase are IFS, transmission, transfer case skids, and all necessary hardware to install.
    Weights:
    1/8" = 85 pounds
    3/16" = 120 pounds


    Details:
    3/16" or 1/8" high strength cold rolled steel (stronger than hot rolled other vendors use)
    45-60 pounds a piece
    Factory mounting holes
    Cutout for engine oil drain plug
    Replaces factory skid plates
    Works with diff drops - no spacers needed
    Not painted or powdered - $125 extra for black powder coat

    Manufacturing time is 2-3 weeks from when I order. I will ship when the order is complete.

    Shipping will be fedex ground. Pay by paypal, cash, check.

    PM for shipping quotes...
    For rough shipping cost estimates on a set:
    Colorado: $75
    California: $100
    Massachusetts: $90
    Florida: $90
    Texas: $75
    Kentucky: $75

    The skids are produced with no cutout as standard, but if you would like a cutout, I can do almost anything you would like for extra.

    Email me at fasttacoma@gmail.com if you don't have an account here but want skids.


    The List:
    1. TX78666 (T4R) - Full set, 3/16", cutout
    2. infamousRNR (T4R) - Full set, 3/16"
    3. DoubleCab362 (TW) - Full set, 1/8"

    I forgot to add that 1/8" thick is still a possibility for this group buy. It was a hot seller last time in the rack coverage skids. Same price.

    What's the weight difference between the 1/8" and 3/16" for just the front IFS skid?

    42 pounds vs. 60. The 1/8" is beefy enough that people thought I sent them 3/16". It is not a weak inferior plate by any means.

    The rack coverage skid would be right up your alley, unless you are worried about putting a rock through your transmission or transfer case. Extra protection is always nice.

    And just to be clear, these fit lifted trucks as long as it isn't a drop bracket 6", and they work with diff drops without any spacers. I can't guarantee aftermarket bumper fitment. Elite bumper owners would need to do minor mods to the front skid. I can get you info on that if needed.

    Anyone interested, please add which skid(s) you are interested in and thickness. 1/8" or 3/16".

    I'll verify that the ifs skid works with my 1" (I think?) diff drop and trail gear low profile front bumper.

    Free bump for some good skids. I bought a set from the first group buy and I'm very happy with them. They can definitely take some abuse.

    By any chance do you have a comparison between the IFS/Rack skid and the stock skid?
