    I just installed these skid plates a few weeks ago and the process was really simple. I was able to do it by myself without any struggles and the best thing is that everything is pretty straight forward for installation.
    I’ve been looking at these RCI skid for a while and I am really glad I picked these up. So far it does the job and it’s not much heavier compared to the stock skid plates. I was worried that I was going to add too much weight onto the 4R, but the difference was about 60lb added, which was perfect.
    I would recommend these if you are looking for a light skid plate and great underbody protection.

    I am quite impressed with the design and quality of workmanship that went into these skid plates. I went with the aluminum plates to eliminate concerns about rust since powder coat would get scratched off over time.

    I haven’t taken them off road yet, but these ¼ inch thick plates are much more rigid than the thin OEM steel ones so I’m confident they will work great. Not only is the material strong, but RCI engineers added strengtheners where needed to beef these up even more. Fit is perfect throughout!

    I think it’s important to note that the 4Runner apparently does not come with an OEM transfer case skid plate; not sure why. Now I have that thick aluminum plate protecting it, and that plate is supported with a strong, custom steel beam that came with it.

    Entire install took about 3 hours including cleanup. but anyone who is experienced could easily remove the old OEM plates and replace with these in about an hour. RCI has made it that easy.

    RCI is a premium company to work with. From beginning to end they made sure I was getting what I needed and kept me informed. Friendly, knowledgeable staff, too.

    I ordered a 5th gen and 3rd gen skid plate packages on a Monday from a group buy and received them all the next momday. Had 2 questions and they answered them right away. Thanks RCI you guys are great!

    Recently had the 5th gen skid plate package installed on my 2019 TRD Off Road Premium. Quality and workmanship are excellent just like the rock sliders previously purchased.
    A small issue came up with the supplied shims for the transfer case skid plate. Those shims were used but I had vibration and noise since the skid plate was too close to the exhaust pipe. Extra shims (provided by local shop) were installed which now give about a 1 inch gap between the skid plate and the exhaust pipe. No vibration and noise. Problem solved.
    Great Products RCI !

    just received these yesterday afternoon and installed them last night. It took about 2 hours without pneumatic tools and without a second set of hands. packaging was very tidy and instructions were easy to follow…now to beat them up a little and post a follow up review…
