OE Nissan Transmission and Engine oil pan skids, stamped steel, never hit, a little crusty and you might wanna clean 'em up a bit and paint 'em, but hey, the price is great. I think I have most of the bolts left over as well. Local pickup, Crofton MD half-way between Baltimore and Washington DC. First that PMs and shows up, gets to take home the prizes.

if only you were a little closer to Arizona... :) might even play with the idea of paying for shipping if you dont end up finding a local buyer and wouldnt mind the hassle.

Ryan, check with Mark (@ArcticMark ). He mentioned a while back about maybe trying to find some OEM skid plates for his truck.

Hey, thanks for thinking of me! I just got back on the site this morning after about a year. I imagine that I have missed a lot so I will try to catch up, but yes, I am still wanting some skid plates. I just bought some too big tires lol (285/75/16 General Grabber ATX) and contemplating the damage I am going to have to do to make them work.

What does the OE Transmission Skid look like. I didn't know that there was such a thing. The transfer case skid?

Yes, I did mis-speak, its the transfer case. Better than zero, I suppose, but with how much is covered and how much is left exposed, between the engine, front diff, transmission pan and transfer case, I was still extremely cautious about the trails I attempted before getting the full armour set. Venturing out on Friday to test the new kit, now that it's all installed. Not planning on doing anything crazy but just having the peace of mind of armour from the fog lamps to the drive shaft is a nice feeling.

Hey better than nothing. My stock t-case skid saved mine from getting majorly crunch on a rock once. Was able to deflect a rock and result in only a chip of the corner of the t-case casting. After market t-case skids hangs down pretty low. Since installing (aftermarket) I have struck it numerous times, when before it would clear.

Someone should be happy with having one.

Oh I will be thrilled to have them for sure! I think the fact that I don't have skidplates is the reason that I keep having that nightmare that I am grocery shopping naked
