There is one of those here at school. 35's, winch, armor, hi lift, not a scratch dent, or spec of dirt on it.

My favorite type of people.

I only have sliders but I do mostly moderate 4x4 trails and washboard back roads... When I come up to something that looks like it will scrape the underside, rather than drag over it I either pick around it very carefully or give it a wide birth and find another way around. But I haven't found much that that stopped me yet... But I'm not running any extreme trails.

Without armor, the FJ is a like a playdough punching bag for boulders, trees, and even some gnarly bushes.

X2!!!!

My FJ (The DangerBuggy) even has bullet proof armor on it...no really..I do...

My front skid is made from the forward bulkhead armor out of an A-7 Corsair II fighter plane.

I have rails and Budbuilt skids. I really like the protection because they are dings gouged and slid across. I don't like the weight and the fact that they completely destroy cleearance and breakover. Bellydoc, (when he had his cruiser) Had the best setup possible. He put an inchworm Lefty in clocked, and cut out the factory crossmember. Relocated the exhaust and fabbed a new crossmember within the frame rails. He gained 3+ inches in the middle. Brilliant. I am looking into such options myself
thanks
Don

+1 ... That's how we've rolled through two Rubicon trips. I'd like a rear pumpkin armor. My drain plug guard is nicely ground down now and it gets hard to get a socket on it after each trail run.
