@Motobilt how long are orders taking to ship out currently? I had ordered the Metalcloak Undercloak system because that's what I had on my 2019, but it is still a few weeks out. Your skid system looks great, and if it is shipping sooner I will try and swap my order. From pictures alone, it seems like your system is better designed. Would you envision any fitment issues with a 2020?

These look raw steel as well, would you recommend powder coating, or paint for these?

I’m on the fence but think when ours come in, I’ll just do them with a clear coat. Super easy to touch up and love the raw look

This kit is killer. Fit is great.

90 minutes to install 3 of the 4 pieces.

There is some clearance loss, but the preserved is much worse than actual. It brings everything down to the lowest point, but that is the about 1/4” lower than the main crossmember. I hope that makes sense.

It does thanks. I worry about expensive bits and I find rock crawling the most challenging and sometimes you don't get to pick your line.

I wonder how Artec claims their system increases clearance by 3/4"?
