    I have recently purchased a 2005 toyota tacoma and would like to purchase a good skid plate combo or just a front one. I have been looking at the bud built 4 piece combo for 725$ which has everything besides the gas tank skid. Is this a good choice or if not which other would be good?

    Bud-Builts are solid, that or ATO...used are really hard to find, because people usually only change them to upgrade them to one of the 2 or to replace broken ones!

    whats your wheel and tire set up man? more on topic bud builts are nice and like the other poster said ato is probably the heaviest duty one you can get. i just picked up an all pro skid for a very reasonable price i'm not for sure, but i don't think that the all pro skids are as strong. it's way more beefy than the stock plate though.

    ATO.

    Don't waste your time anywhere else.

    Budbuilt is good, but I have serious doubts about any other brand's ability to stand up to what I've put these skids through.
