Provide the maximum protection for your 2015-2022 F-150 with a full skid plate package deal by RCI Metalworks. Protect your investment with RCI skids, the ultimate defense for all on and off-road hazards.
Many F150 owners have been looking for skid plates for everyday use and light off-roading, whether camping, hunting, working, or playing. We listened to your feedback and RCI skid plates for 2015-2022 trucks are now available in two options, providing the protection for any application. Below are the benefits of 10ga steel and 1/4” aluminum options, both offering premium quality, fit and finish.
10ga Steel– Great all-purpose protection, and the best value for the money. These make a great upgrade whether you already have the stock skid plates, or have nothing at all. Our 10 gauge skid plates are far tougher than OEM and provide significantly more coverage, especially when purchased as part of our “Full Skid Plate Package”. A heavy duty black powdercoat finish is standard on the steel option and will provide years of reliable use and great looks. WEIGHS 88lbs
1/4” Aluminum– Excellent all around protection for any purpose, substantially stronger than factory skid plates, extremely corrosion resistant and cannot rust means they require no finish or paint prior to installation. The aluminum skid plates are extremely lightweight yet strong and are the premium choice if you are looking for the best strength to weight ratio, while being comparable if not holding a slight edge over the 10ga steel product line. WEIGHS 58lbs

The black steel full kit looks amazing and is very easy to install on the 2019 F150. It took me about an hour and a half start to finish, solo with no lift. Start from the front and don’t tighten anything (including the mounting brackets) all the way until all your plates are installed and then tighten from the back to the front, pushing all of the plates forward as you go to make sure they are all the way in the “sandwich” of the plate in front. Looking at the downloadable instructions (for the clearer color photos) might help if you are unsure of anything. I expect much better protection than stock skid plates and look forward to climbing some slopes that my previous F150 couldn’t handle. Thanks RCI!

This is a really nice upgrade. I did it myself in the driveway in about 2 hours. Everything fit perfectly and it is a huge upgrade over the factory FX4 skid plates.

I purchased the full package (steel) for my 2019 F150 and couldn’t be happier with the quality. The kit was easy to install in the driveway by myself and the protection it provides is top notch. Highly recommend!!!
These are by far the best skid plates around. I’ve had the full steel ones on my 2016 F150 for 4 yrs now and I just ground and painted them as they were rusting as expected. They’re still solid and I’m sure I’ll beat on them for another 4yrs! Only disappointing thing is that I just noticed that it now comes with the transfer case skid and not sure if i just didn’t get it or it wasn’t part of the kit at the time.

I got the raw aluminum full skid package and it is awesome. Reason I gave a 4 stars because there is no opening or cut out for oil filter for replacement (maybe make a trap door similar to the oil pan area). Replacing oil filter will require to remove the front plate.

Took less than two hours to install
a whole lot better than OEM. I did it in my driveway by myself with no lift or jacking it up.

I ordered the full skid plate package to replace the fiberglass stock skid plates that had been damaged. It did take a couple weeks to get them, but once I received them I was able to install them with ease and in just over an hour for the entire package. They are very heavy duty but easy enough to install without a ton of extra equipment needed.

Installed on 2020 F150. Looks great, fit great. I think the extra weight of the Steel plates makes my truck feel more grounded. Product looks tuff and I’m sure will protect my F150 vitals when I need them to. Looks better than any others I have had.

A huge upgrade over the flimsy fabric stock covers. I feel a lot more protected, especially the plastic oil pan. Materials are high quality and the finishes on mine were perfect. Install took about 1.5 hours and very straightforward and easy enough for one person to do. I highly recommend.

Very well engineered product. Fit was perfect, my daughter and I put the full skid set on in about 3 hours start to finish.
Very high quality.
