I was pretty disappointed when I found out after the fact that my 4x4 did not have skid plates. Every 4x4 I've ever owned came with them.

I don't go off-roading like I used to in my Beast but it would be nice to know that if I slid off the road in snow/ice or decided to follow an unpaved road that my oil pan and other vitals were protected.

As a side note, I remember seeing a post here on the Z about using the tow hooks to pull other vehicles out. Someone said its not a good idea to pull using reverse. I don't remember the specifics, but if I find it, I'll post a link or quote about it. Just thought I'd mention it.
