Hello all again. How do you guys think the stock skids plates are in terms of protection. I have a 4x4 S model and i have only the front skid plate. I found a good deal on the stock skid plates from xterraparts.com. I think like $15 bux for the oil pan and the same for the T-case. I want the shrocks but they are a little pricey for me right now. I just want some protection for that trip to Rattlesnake Canyon on the 24th.
