    You can see the gas tank skid in the second photo for the Transmission skid plate. I'll be getting better photos of all of the skids soon.

    And don't worry, The skid you receive will NOT have any surface rust on it!

    great product man :thumbsup: however im not a big fan of the bolt heads facing down. all i see is them getting hemmed up on rocks and stuff, in the last picture you should take 2 inches more and wrap around the brace that attaches to the frame and bolt them inward instead of up. That would also lessen the chance of them breaking, just my thought.

    Romeo,

    Thank you for the comment. For the T-case skid I actually will do that. I was already planning to go button head screws for the Trans skid where it bolts to the t-case cross member.

    What can I expect for shipping to 80526 for the $596 kit? And how long is turnaround time?
    Approx how much is it to reroute the exhaust?

    I sent you a PM. I do not know the going rate for exhaust work. You'd be best off to take your truck to a couple of shops locally and get quotes.

    The Front Skid mounts to the bottom of the front frame cross member. You shouldn't have any issues with an ARB. PM sent.

    We've had a few requests for Aluminum front skids. We can do those now too! $389 for a front skid made from 1/4" 6061T6. They aren't on 4x I site yet so call if you'd like one. BTW the ATO site is almost done, just waiting on one more puzzle piece and it'll be live, and it has some GREAT features!

    Feel free to send/post updates or pics on my skids! I'm like a little kid right now, anxious as hell to get these babies. I'm not waiting a few months to go try them out either, I will go snow bashing and look for some big rocks!
