Like them, but wouldn’t buy again

Super hard to install due to fitment/holes slightly off. Have extended my oil changes because of this. No access port for oil filter.

Best Skids You can buy

Love the ricochetoffroad skid plates. They fit and lined up perfectly with my 2016 tacoma. I love how Don and Paige took care of me regarding questions I had. I got there full brushed 9 piece skid plates. Only minor feedback is that maybe the online pictures need to match the part for tacoma. I had questions because the pictures wasn't really the actual part for tacoma. (Transfer case crossmember/transfer case skid)

I use my 2017 Tacoma for light off-road use (hiking, firewood, a little hunting) and after a couple boulder-bounces in the rimrock country of Sedona, AZ, I figured skidplates were in order. Ordered a full set of aluminum skid plates from Ricochet and overall very pleased. They were well and cleanly formed and welded, the anodizing was superb, and they went on pretty easily--everything lined up with a little nudging. Did it by myself with a small floor jack to hold the big parts. Was particularly pleased to get decent protection on the gas tank. Have taken a couple minor whacks since I installed them and they're performing like I'd expect aluminum to do. Wish I'd done full anodizing just because they were so darn pretty. Did lose a little ground clearance, but this is not my serious offroad rig (for that I crank up my beloved Jeep Rubicon) and the USFS roads I'm usually on don't demand that much clearance for the most part. Upsides--extensive coverage reduces the amount of mud, snow, salt, and slop splashed into a good part of the underbody and most everything is skid-protected now. Mild concerns--I'm no fan of cup washers and expect those to deform over time/use--so I ordered an extra pack and tossed in truck (should include a few for free, I think). Much to my chagrin, I missed a Black Friday sale by a few days--so wait for that! Instructions should be refreshed with better quality and more photos--took me too long to figure out how the A-frame skids mounted, and the cross-bar installation was a bit confusing. And lastly, I change my filter every change and that means dropping a big plate plus having to drop the tranny plate to access the U-joint which is greased every change. But that is what it is. Overall, excellent quality at a good price, and I'm pleased to have them mounted.
