River Raider makes good stuff. I Like them. That "skid everything with one plate" thing they make is awesome. I think it requires a 1" BL though, but that's ok.

Having lived with RR skids for a year, I am no longer recommending their engine/trans skid. It mounts to the frame and engine, so you get a lot of vibration. It also makes it impossible not to pull a BP while changing the oil (yeah, I went there ).
It is beefy as hell, but the inconveniences aren't worth it unless you're wheeling all the time- Mark W.
