Which front skid with this bumper?

I need a front hitch and settled on this bumper from Olympic. I want to replace the plastic front skid and was wondering what would work best?



I like the SKID row stuff if they didn't stamp out their name on it.

The stamped name gives me airflow to the eswaybar unit and the bottom aux cooler--




Whatever-

It sure fits good and looks good. Just me, I'm not into the billboard accessories.

I mounted the skidrow like Jimbox and also mounted the Rugged Ridge with it. Takes some work, but they protect different parts. They are mounted with my JCR midwidth. You can see where one ends and the other starts from the side.

Rugged Ridge seems like a winner. It can be mounted independent of the bumper just like the Skid Row.

PM me for a quote if interested.
