Uhmmmm... what are you looking for? If they don't carry them... it must be very special or you're looking for something less expensive.

I just like to check into all the options before I make a decision.
I don't impulse buy.
A key feature that I want is to tie into the frame.

If you tie to the frame to the tub, flex between the tub and frame can be compromised. That's not a good thing.

Everyone is right, tie to frame gives strength, tie to tub gives looks and features (side protection) however if you do both with a body mount hockey puck, you get it all. Though you will need to make it yourself.

Let me clarify:
By "tie into frame" I meant connecting to the body mount.
The Shrockworks and Poison Spyder ones bolt to the body but also are attachted at the body mount points.
The Bulletproof ones are only connected to the frame, not the body.
The Tomken ones that I had were only connected to the frame via the body mount bolts. The Bulletproof ones look similar to the Tomkens ones except they look sealed whereas the Tomken ones rusted from the inside out because mud and water sat in the tubes that connected the skid to the frame.

I would think that the Shrockwork/Poison Spyder ones would still allow the body to move slightly with respect to the frame. No?

Bryan, seeing you're in MA, check out Detours skids.

Detours

Give Mark a call - they also do custom Fab, and can make anything you would want. You could drive down and get 'em - wouldn't even have to ship the stuff.

Good luck,
Pete

Since I am not pimping my own stuff anymore, I recomend AtoZ or Posion Spider.
