    I put one of the RCI skid plates on my 1997 4Runner 4 years ago and it’s been awesome. Good group of folks too. I picked it up since I am local to northern Colorado, and the fabrication shop is so great….small metal building out in the middle of nowhere and just a bunch of cool cats bending metal. My kind of place! And the product is above and beyond and well priced. The most sturdy thing on the whole rig.
