    I have been looking to upgrade my factory skids on my 2004 V8 for a while and, after looking around, I decided on the raw aluminum engine skid and could not be more happy with my choice. I wanted to stay away from steel as our vehicle is not a rock basher and loved that these came in a quality aluminum option. This is light weight with excellent craftsmanship plus quality hardware. It was an easy swap that can be done in a few moments in the driveway. Not to mention, the raw aluminum looks pretty sharp! This is a solid investment and information from the company was always quick and reliable.
