    @01erionracing built his own front skid plate. Only aftermarket I’m aware of is Skid Row.

    Thanks for the response Casper, going to fabricate one myself most likely unless I can find one under $100 HaHa!

    You’re not gonna find one for under $100. Sounds like custom fab is in your future.

    Yeah custom fab is the only option. I searched for months then finally had a buddy of mine build me one for $500

    So here is what I came up with, I made it out of 1/8" steel, painted it with POR 15 then coated it with Raptor liner mixed with silver sky metallic the same time I sprayed my bed.

    Big fan of this whole bumper set up. Did you do a bar frame type set up and then add the skid plates?? I’d love to do something similar to mine.
