Looking at the oilfilter its unreachable with my new skids on. Do I need to drop this before going to Toyota for oilchange?

You may want to ask your local dealer about that. I know stock OR skids have to be dropped but since aftermarket is heavier who knows if they want to charge you. Plus I'd be concerned they over torque or strip them.

Ya and there is a mid skid too that has to come off for the front. Gonna be a pain in the butt each oil change.

My RCI skid had a oil filter panel.

Ok so mine does not. I assume to maximize protection down there and eliminate any weak spots. Not a crazy big deal there just hard with one person to drop each time. Still worth it for the protection i guess

I have wondered what Toyota would say as well. I plan to add skids eventually.. I actually have an old skid from my 4th gen 4runner that I thought would fit. Went through all the trouble of cutting a filter access hole out only to find that while a lot of the rest of the suspension/drivetrain is interchangeable, the Taco skid plate is about 2" longer :(

Pelfrey doesn’t have a cut out either
Yeah they do. It’s a hole right under the pan. Just need an extender to reach the bolt. You’ll also probably get some oil splash on the inside of the skid.

Add a Fumoto valve. Makes for an easy and clean oil drain right into a container. I also have something similar to drain the filter housing before removal.
