    Anyone make some good armor?
    Definitely need one for the rear diff, bashed mine up pretty good last outing.
    And wouldn't mind more protection down low other than the front skid.

    I will be at RCI this Friday who is using my truck as a mock setup for an after market skids, and maybe even some heavy dutier steps.

    At the min, your basic protection skid (obviously just a much thicker and heavier aluminum) but there was talk of full body skids ...will keep you posted.

    Both would be great. There's already the front TRD Pro skid with convenient oil filter access plate, but it would be good to have another option for the front. Full body skids or a piece-meal option for the trans, t-case, rear diff and gas tank would also be great.

    We would do engine/ifs, trans, and t case. No rear diff. Possibly gas tank too since it's pretty large
