What are they made from, and what do they protect?

Bought all three skid plates, but I haven't got the diff or oil pan skid yet.





It bolted up well and the manufacturing quality is very good.

I went to put on my skids today and failed.
Not because I couldnt do it but because Im thinking of changing my exhaust soon and didnt want to put it all on to take it all off in a month or whenever. But I did take pics of everything mocked up

@supermodulation just to be clear on the terminology, description & location of you Skidz, do I have it right in the photos below?

1) Front Skidz
2) Differential Skidz
3) Oil Pan Skidz
4) Transfercase Skidz
5) Fuel Tank Skidz.

And how do 2 & 3 mount? I see the front of 2 uses existing bolts, does the back of 2 & 3 mount to the crossmember?

@lqdchkn I hope you don't mind I borrowed your pics!




So far I just have the #1) Front Skidz installed on my truck- Excellent Fit & Quality Product

You are Correct! BTW you did a great illustration. Thanks

Look closely at 2 and 3 skidz. you will notice the L mounting brackets that tie into your truck frame/suspension.

I was glad to notice that you made these separate pieces. I think in your original pic they were permanently attached to the skid right?? This makes it way easier to remove the skid if ever needed without having to take that mount off the X-member

Out of curiosity and I dont know if it would even measurable but have you seen any difference (improvement) in MPG from "flat bottoming" the undercarriage?

Im kinda curious to know, since taking the front air dam off lost about 1mpg if these are enoungh to recover any, if even a small amount, of that back??
