    Ordered a set of Rival 4x4 aluminum skid plates. 1/4” aluminum, powder coated, armor door for oil filter and drain, covers front radiator to almost gas tank. Hope to get them installed tomorrow.

    They were in stock in their location in Texas. I had them in less than a week $800 including shipping.

    Pictures, please! Plus let us know how it goes trying to change the oil filter through the door that's installed in the plate.

    Rival website doesn't state whether the engine skid works with KDSS...for those with it, it would be good to know.

    Didn’t have time to install today. Hopefully one day this week. Quality looks on par with the Trd pro skid I had before.

    Color does almost match the silver, it the color they all come. I’m debating spraying them black like I did my TRD skid.

    As far as kdss, the instructions say they fit the Lexus GX 460 and Prado. I really wanted to install them today but I didn’t have enough time to do it slowly and check all the clearances and take pictures.

    Those are super nice........they may be nicer than my RCI Metalworx but the install will be your choice on that. LOVE the trap doors like mine.

    Any thoughts on RCI vs Rival vs Victory Front Skids? I'm just starting slow and working my way around the vehicle. Would be a big help for oil changes to have those trap doors.

    My aluminum RCI skid has an access panel for the oil filter, but just a small round hole for the oil pan drain. I wish it did come with a panel there.

    I was set to order the RCI ones until I found these. I asked RCI to add the access but they wouldn’t. Budbuilt would but they were $1500 without powder coat.

    I plan to add a Fumoto-type valve to the oil drain on the next oil change, so I imagine the lack of an access panel there isn't a big deal, but it would have been preferable. I paid less last August 2021 for my powder coated RCI than the Rival is now, but the current RCI skid price with shipping is about $52 more than Rival with shipping.

    One other factor is I'm not all that fond of the silver/gray color of the Rival skid, which resembles the TRD skid. I like the black.

    Just the front in aluminum was comparable RCI, Rival, LFD, Greenland. It’s the rear that became more expensive. I’m still debating on painting these black. My TRD skid went 4 years painted black with no issues.
