TRD front skid and then RCI all the way back to the rear diff and shocks. Went 1/4 raw aluminum where available. Glad I waited for the new redesigned skids as they are improved, especially the gas tank. Great quality, perfect fitment, no rattles and received my orders within two weeks each time during big sales.

Skids are next on my list.
Still bouncing back and forth between BudBuilt & RCI.
If BudBuilt releases the "tummy tuck" that will clinch it for me.

Overall experience was great. Ordering process was easy, they arrived well packaged within the approximate delivery/production times, and the installation instructions were good. Fit and finish with all pieces is excellent.

I opted for the non-powdercoat version to keep costs down.

mine are powder coated steel, and I have the rear pumpkin skid as well.
Same reasons as above, they work seamlessly with the stock PRO skid plate.

This is what I would go with for the TRD skid goes much higher on the front than the others, almost to the bottom of the front bumper. Then the RCI from there back.

RCI is the only skid that integrates with the TRD skid on the front.

C4 has a TRD Pro integration skid also. Steel only. For ~50lbs more total for all the skids from front to rear as compared to aluminum I will take steel. Stronger, tougher and easier to fix. 50lbs extra is not going to save your gas mileage or performance. If you really need to use them the steel is better. Aluminum has better corrosion resistance.

I went with the Rago fuel tank skid instead - it does a much better job of covering the front end is no more expensive, and they will make it in aluminum or steel to match whatever else you decide. Highly reccomended.

RCI redesigned their gas tank skid, by the way. I have full RCI set including the redesigned gas tank skid. The front of the gas tank skid is reinforced.

I like them a lot.

This was my thinking exactly. The weight penalty going from aluminum to steel isn't that much unless you are counting every pound and loading up near the maximum gvwr.

I went with C4 front to back, still waiting on half the order but the pieces I've received look outstanding. Love their fuel tank skid.

That new gas tank design is beefy, even with being 1/4 aluminum itís one heavy MFír

I have LFD front and transmission skids with RCI transfer case skid plate. I want to say that RCI redesigned their transfer case skid plates to eliminate the exhaust rattle from getting rocks/dirt/mud stuck between the plate and exhaust.

My advice to the OP, if you think you might need steel plates, get steel. Aluminum is nice in that it doesnít rust, but itís more expensive, can fatigue with multiple hits and the weight savings you will get may end up being negligible after all the other weight you add, if that is what you intend to do.

Another vote for RCI Aluminum Skids here... Integration all the back past the T-Case... Not doing heavy rock crawling so the Aluminum was plenty sufficient and the folks at RCI did not disappoint on the skids or the sliders... I believe there is an RCI group buy here every fall that will save you some $$.

Good luck!
