I currently have cbi covert front bumper, Vixtory 4x4 mid and transfer case black powder coated aluminum skids. I am interested in getting a steel front engine skid. RCI and Victory 4x4 have sales going on right now. I’ve been going down the wormhole of reading comments/reviews and seems like all the major brands have their own issues. Can anyone with experience with multiple brands help? I’m leaning towards Victory 4x4 steel front engine skid since I already have their mid + transfer case skid

Don't the Victory skids kind of dovetail together? Might be a reason to stick with Victory.

But what do I know, I have a hodgepodge of 3 different brands of skid plates.

As far as I know, budbuilt offers the only front skid that has easy oil drain plug and filter access. Been happy with mine. Solid and everything matches up perfectly, even the mounting screws to the plastic trim.

Looked at your post again and forgot that you have that new cbi bumper, so not sure how the budbuilt would look like fit up to it.

Thanks! I’ll reach out to Bud to see if his front skid is compatible with a cbi front bumper.
