No those are two different skids. The first is a superlift and the second is a trailmaster. IMO the superlift skids are the biggest waste of $125 i ever saw. It barely comes up to protect ur crossmember. the trailmaster one looks like would protect ur radiator but it doesn't look like could take any rocks on. Just build ur own.

i already made myself a metal one to replace the plastic stock one but i wanted to get that one cause i thought it would come all they way to the crossmember and keep all the rocks out. looks like ill just have to extend the one i built to come to the crossmember.
