Looking for a skid plate system for a 97 auto

I am looking for aluminium skid plate system (steel if I have to - transfer case and tranny) for my 97 auto. Here are the companies I have looked at and not sure which ones and if there are more:

Savvy (nothing for the 97 auto yet so )
UCF (haven't heard great things from a reliable source)
Rokmen (steel but one of the cheapest)
Genright (more fab work then I want to do for the price I would be paying)
????

What are your intelligent thoughts and feelings? Do you run any of the above minus savvy, they don't make one for my year/tranny combo.

Thanks guys

UCF should have what you need. Check them out.

Are you saying you've heard bad things about UCF? Search a bit and you'll find plenty of happy customers; I wouldn't have any issues with their skid plate system. If Savvy had nothing for my model year and I was looking for a manufactured skid, I'd probably go with them.

I installed a Skid Row engine/transmission skid plate a few years ago and have nothing but good things to say about it: great price, easy install and extremely effective. It is, however, steel construction.

UCF is a great option because of the sheer number of options they have.
