Thanks for the feedback! It does look like relatively minor trimming needed for 2-door fitment...Still burns my rear that manufactures tell you 'modifications needed for 2-door install' instead of offering a factory 2-door version-maybe a discount would be in order for us doing their work :)

I haven't really started beating on her yet, but the Evo skid protects fairly well and doesn't add as much weight as a full skid. I like the idea of a full skids for protection but don't like the added weight. Trade offs I guess. $2,000 for skids seems a bit excessive.

I look under there and think, "protect what?" Well i was damaging the exhaust so that was order one. Looking around and everything else looks in good shape. And we beat the heck out of her. The Evo skid has protected the exhaust extremely well. Plus everything else it covers. The weight to protection ratio is what sold me.

I ended up going with TnT as well, they had it in stock when I called and shipped it right out. Weighed in at 21 lbs. Metalcloak was my other choice but I decided to keep the weight down and just do engine skid for now. They do have the transfer skid for the 2 door available, it's a bit more than the engine skid in price so I held off for now. ( I did my order over the phone - website still not updated)

Cool! Please post some pictures...

I just installed the EVO ProTek and trimmed to fit my 2-door-pictures and write up in the 'Underbody: Rock rails/armor/skid plates' section of Tech.

It’s not too bad with the evo, they put a nice hole in the skid that works well for draining the oil. It does catch a lil oil but nothing you can’t clean with a quick wipe of the rag.
