This is a Typo that we have brought to CBI's attention.

The 180lbs refers to the Steel Skid Plates.

We have also been told that Aluminum is roughly have the weight of steel.

ok Aluminum skids just arrived 10 minutes ago. got them unbolted from pallette and used a digital bathroom scale to weigh each piece.

Front Skid= 26.8 pounds
rear skid= 24.4 pounds
rear crossmember and all hardware still wrapped on it= 10.8 pounds
total weight= 62 pounds

Wow, they look great. So, the aluminum set might be only 1/3rd the weight of the steel; this is gonna be a tough decision. GL with the install @57buick !

Ok so I just got them installed and this is my experience. These were the aluminum front and rear.

First, man the clearances for the holes are super tight so it took a lot of wrangling to get them all on and bolt holes lined up. Had to use the bolts themsleves and a ratchet to bring everything together.

You definitely need to run a M8x1.25 tap into the bolt hole for rear crossmember because the factory paint in the threads will not allow you to thread in the bolts.

The instructions need to be updated with a few things. I also found that I had to remove the factory braces ant the rear crossmember, that was not in the instructions at all.

Also, I was missing several of the 3/8-16 nuts so I had to run to the hardware store.

You can see in one pic below that my URD Y-pipe just barely clears by 1/4" I think the factory Y-pipe would hit it for sure!

Also I had installed the Baxter Performance oil filter adapter a couple weeks ago so I could use a regular spin on oil filter.
I had to modify the factory skid to clear the filter I used because of the piece sticking up on factory skid I had to hammer that a bit and cut some out.

With the CBI skids it cleared great with 2 inches to spare so that was another plus and seems easy enough to replace filter without removing the skids now.

I had also temporarily mounted my rock camera on the factory skid before so after installing the CBI skids I finally got around to installing the rock camera up in a hole in bottom of bumper which protects the camera better anyway.

the pic of the work blanket under front of vehicle then seeing the front view on the screen gives you an idea how super wide of view this camera is lol

And you can see I painted the front skid with the matching toyota touch up paint, I know its gonna get scratched up but figured better blending in a bit than standing out

One thing I don't understand with how these skids are made is what the purpose of this square area that sticks down from the skid. It is nowhere near sitting under the transfer case. There doesnt seem to be anything around that area once mounted so I don't get why its there?

Hopefully someone at CBI can elaborate on that?

here is a better view of the clearance for my oil filter now with the CBI skids. I could maybe even get a longer filter for more filtration since I have lots of clearance.

CBI does offer Aluminum Skid Plates. Part #T4R5-SKID-FRT-PRO

Our website is being update to included Steel and Aluminum options

I'm not seeing the option "Part #T4R5-SKID-FRT-PRO" on your website.

Just saw this old post. That's to accommodate the stock exhaust crossover.
