Woo Hoo! Bonus time at work! Time to throw some money at the truck! I'm thinking I need to upgrade my armor. Metaltech4x4 is local(ish) to me so I can save on shipping. I was looking at this skid plate set from ARB though and I wanted to know if anyone was running it and what they thought of it. Thank you!

I've been eyeing the same set. Heard nothing but good things about those skids. And it's not a bad price for a full kit.

Hmmm...the source of the 3mm thickness not being thick enough came from TW, and thus it is wrong. Should be fine for my needs...but now I'm thinking I need a Jackery battery and Cell booster more...too many things!
I went with the CBI skid package and I forget where I got the gas tank skid. Maybe Rago. Don't know about the ARB tho
