skid plates and differential protection

Just wondering what brands are good and what to stay away from. I'm kinda leaning towards Warn but would like some other opinions. Thanks

I run a Warn gas tank skid, and Riddler diff covers. Have heard good things about Savvy aluminum skid plates but have no idea what they cost.

I looked at the UCF stuff. Looks like a good product for a good price.

Riddler Diff covers (I run the WARN diff guard in the front, but the Riddler on the rear . . . no problems with the WARN, but if I did it over I'd get two Riddlers . . . pure BEEF, smoothed edges to slide over stuff, recessed bolts, they're the BOMB)

AEV/Nth Diff Sliders

AEV/Nth Oil Pan Skid or a Skid Row Engine Skid (unless you go with a Tummy Tuck/Engine Skid Combo)

Savvy Gas Tank Skid
