Gas Tank & Steering Box Skids

Hello.

Some days ago I wanted to order the Kilby gas tank and steering box skids at 4wd.com. But the shipping rates are very expensive.
Whats about these skids from Warn? They are also made of 3/16 material. Are they ok? Does the Warn gas tak skd also gve +1" ground clearance? I could buy these skids here in Germany.
Incl. shipping, toll and VAT the Kilby skids cost 50% more than the Warn skids.

Thanks.

i don't know what kind of ground clearance the warn skid gives, but i know that they make a very good skid plate. if i were you, i would get the warn and save on the shipping.

Do you want someone to twist your arm first?

No. I have the Warn oil pan skid and that skid is very weak IMO.

I have a Kilby and I understand why shipping is high but I guess a lot of steel is costly to ship . I do like the added ground clearance
