I've been looking into getting a bunch of skid plates and armor for my 02 4wd. I'm planning a huge trip in my truck for the summer that includes a lot of wheeling (Going to Moab!!!) and I want to get all the protection I can before I set out. I'm lloking at front skid plates, gas tank skid plates, rock sliders.
So far I've found one bolt0on Rock Slider through rocky road outfitters for $419 + shipping
Ford Ranger Rock Sliders: Protect Your Ford Ranger with Rock Sliders
Has anyone ran these? How strong are they and do you have any pics? I havn't been able to find any close up pics of the sliders.
For the front skid I'm looking at RCI metal works and possibly picking up their transfercase skid while i'm at it.

Does anyone else make Front skid plates? I know there are pre-runner bumpers out there but I can't really drop the cash on one of them plus I'm going to design my own eventually.
As for the gas tank skid plate I cant find anything. The only thing I've been able to come up with so far is either getting one from the dealership or a junk yard.
