Skidplates of the Trail Teams!

Provides a smooth bottom for your cruiser without holes and notches to catch things on the trail.  Covers from the front crossmember near the bumper to behind the transfer case.  Low hanging exhaust crossover pipe is protected with a smooth sheet of steel.  Front alignment adjustment points are protected from rocks too.


We have skids for your 2010 FJs too!  Fronts mount differently and take a different filler plate too but we have them in stock now.  :)

FJ sliders 1.JPG (58285 bytes)  

BudBuilt sliders are available in 2 different styles and 2 different material thicknesses allowing you to select the perfect strength and style for your FJ!  They all bolt to the factory holes with the thickest plates in the industry ( 3/8" !!)  These protect your frame from bowing or cupping when the weight of your truck is carried by the sliders.  There is a brace on 3 of the four legs to helps support the weight.  The stock emergency brake lines fit with no modifications.  The 2 styles allow you to choose the look and protection that you desire.  They come with ultra-thick washers and grade 10.9 metric hardware to attach them.  They are available in the standard .120" wall HREW tubing (that most other sliders use)  We also offer them in .187" thick DOM tubing for those that can break a rubber ball in a padded cell!  These will NOT dent, bend, bow, etc for EXTREME rock crawling.  These come with a lifetime warrantee against bending!  

$399/pair for the .120" thick versions

$559/pair for the .187" thick lifetime warranteed version

Powdercoating available for an additional $89

BudBuilt diff skid 5s.JPG (31517 bytes)  BudBuilt diff skid 7s.JPG (31083 bytes)

Totally bolt on with 8 stainless steel bolts. VERY tight fit to the bottom and back, so there is minimum loss of ground clearance. Smooth on the bottom, with 4 drain holes for mud and water. Extra hole cut for the drain plug on request.  Although it is easy to remove and install, I don't recommend it. Provides great protection of the e locker motor without the need for another guard. Of course it clears our gas tanks skids. 3/16" thick steel construction.  They weigh 19#. Available bare steel, powdercoated or stainless steel. As tough as they get with all the engineering and great fit you have come to expect from BudBuilt.

Diff skid in bare steel: $298
add $25 for powdercoating
add $85 for stainless steel construction
