    Perfect fit, straightforward 30 min install. Very happy :militarypress:

    Smart move! If you even think about the dirt, this should be high on the list of mods.

    Love it when form and function come together! They look really cool and seem like they do the job so much better than stock.

    I really like mine, but after my last oil change I learned why they also sell Fumoto valves

    Very nice plates, had them on my 4Runner. Did you go with aluminum or steel?

    Got my RCI skid plate installed! Less than 500 miles later I ran into a 1' x 4' chunk of iron that was being bounced from car to car in a construction zone on I25 in the Ft. Collins area at highway speeds. It hit hard enough to shudder the truck and make me pull over to check my tires and undercarriage. The skid plate shrugged it off with just the paint scraped off and the filter access door lightly dented. Very impressed, very happy customer. Thank you @RCIoffroad for an awesome product.
