oil pan skid

What are some good recomendations for skids? I will most likely be adding a Terraflex tummy tuck in a couple weeks and would like to take care of the oil pan while I am underneath. I just replaced the rear main seal and would rather not break loose the oil pan (lazy I guess) any decent engine or frame mounted skids???

I am a fan of the SkidRow engine skid. I do get a lot of use out of it since my suspension lift is 2". It does hold up well.

Go aluminum and save a ton of weight with a skid from Savvy or UCF. MUCH lighter and just as strong.

If you are doing a Teraflex transfer case skid, why not do the Teraflex oil pan skid and transmission skid? They are designed to work together and seem like a pretty good/strong design. I just bought their oil pan skid (~$150) and will be fabbing my own transmission skid to adapt to my custom designed flat skid.
