Skid plates

What skid plates do you all have/reccomend? Which locations are the most important, which are less? I assume that they're all important to have, but if people could comment on where I should start and which things could be left 'till later. Thanks!

I would reccomend gas tank skid, oil pan skid, and rocker guards. For a gas tank skid you can't go wrong with Kilby. I have Avalanche Engineering (now poison spider) Rocker Knockers and I like them a lot. I've heard good things about 4X doctors and Jeeperman.

Skid Plates Threads: Check Archives

A great deal has been written about skid plates and the order of importance. It seems that just about anybody who has done some offroading has experiences when additional skid plates beyond those from factory would have come in handy. Look up "skid plates" in the archives and you'll find a wealth of onformation on the topic. Have a look at this link for example.

I would suggest some sort of front differential/steering component skid plate. Tie rods bend very easy.
