Rokmen vs. UCF Engine Skid Plates

Rokmen and UCF are having specials today on their websites. I'm thinking about getting a skid plate that will cover the oil pan and transmission. Both offer steel skid plates, but UCF offers an aluminum one as well. Any feedback from owners of either skid plate would be appreciated. Have a good Memorial Day!

I own the ucf aluminum tcase skid and engine skid. Both were easy to install and fit perfectly. Highly recommended

I own the rokeman skid. Very heavy 1/4 will take a beating.

I have run both. They don't even compare, Rokmen is way better. Just my experience.

I don't have any experience with the UFC skid so I can't speak on them. I did install a Rokmen transfer case skid a few months ago. It fit perfect and seems very strong. I've crashed it through the rocks a few times already and it performed flawless. I think UFC offers a skid that tucks up tighter but the Rokmen skid worked perfect for my 03.

I have a tummy tuck skid from UCF and a gas tank skid from Rokmen. Both are great products. Dealing with Matt at UCF has always been a pleasure and he has given me some great deals on top of the promotions he offers.
