Cool, thanks paul. Looking at the pictures online compared to the pics of yours, they have changed the shape a bit. That is why I was asking.

The ones online are the same as mine. Realize I have a 2011 and I think the 09 and earlier are different shape than the 10 and up.

Yup the 2011 and maybe 2010 are a different design.

Correct, the bash plate for the 2010+ is different from the previous years.

I still have my lockable "man purple" tire cover for the 265. Im thinking of either painting it black or using it as a sled this winter... its been on Craigslist and the forum for about 6 months. lol

You could also put it on top of your FJ so it looks like you have Satellite TV! LOL

I need to find another spacer for the rear door. I really like the look that gave your FJ.

Thanks Dave. Give Spidertrax a call. I got mine used from them for pretty cheap.

I installed my skids yesterday & drove the FJ for the first time today with the new skids. Is it me or does the FJ feel more solid on the road with the full package of skids? It also sounded a little quieter going down the interstate with the windows up or down. Doesn't seem to get the road noise coming up through the floor as bad.
I posted a full set of pics on the Ricochet vendor thread.

Got mine installed! Anyone done anything creative/different with the cat protector tubes? They stick out like a sore thumb under there.

No just let them do their job. After my install of these skids I went out west to CO, UT, AZ, & NV for 6 weeks of wheeling. They saved my undercarriage several times. These skids performed flawlessly. You will be happy with them installed. The black looks good. Did you paint them or did Ricochet? Did you add the rear bumper skid? It saved my bumper on one descent down the staircase in Sedona AZ.
