I've have a set of Budbuilt skids in 1/4" aluminum for sale.

I have the front, engine, transmission, and transfer skid in aluminum, with the steel transfer crossmember.

They have been used off road a fair amount. They aren't pretty anymore. But they are still fully functional. Lots of pictures of them in this thread: Post your wheeling damage pics -

I wouldn't recommend these if you plan to do lots of off roading where there are big rocks/ledges. They work, but since they are aluminum, they gouge more easily and get deformed. The good news is that they can be persuaded back into a usable shape since they are aluminum.

These will not win awards at show and shine, or cars and coffee. They've been used on trails and have scrapes, gouges, bends, and wear. They would be good for instant overland cred on instagram though. :)

They're still installed on the vehicle at the moment, so I'd need a little advance notice to remove them.

Pick up only in the Burlington, Vermont area.

New from Bud, the set runs $1910, plus shipping. I'm asking $1200 OBO.

I'll throw in a Rival aluminum fuel skid if you want it.
Anyone on the fence if this is a good deal - Just 2 weeks ago paid $2143 (with shipping)
This is what they look like from the underside of the 200.

@CharlieS - great member/seller

Agreed, I have the same set. These are awesome and the highest quality on the market.
They're off the vehicle and ready for a new home, if anyone is interested. I'm open to reasonable offers.
$1100 cash and carry.
Reduced to $1000.
Yes, they are available.
Still available, pick up in Vermont near Burlington only.
@CharlieS I understand that you've clearly stated pick-up only, but if shipping ever becomes an option down the road on your side, I would take these.
Thanks, I have offered to drop other things off at the UPS store if a buyer contacts them and pays for boxing and shipping. I'd do that with these as well, but I'm afraid of what the shipping and handling charges might add up to. They're both bulky and heavy.
