I like some of the other ones, but seems the CST, since it just replaces the plastic OEM protector, for me that's the way to go. It doesn't bulk anything up and will allow you to put whatever nerfs you'd like to since it's not any larger than the OEM projector.

You can just search CST def skid plate on google, numerous places have them. Can't think off hand, but I 'think' I got mine from XDP.

Was also looking into the CST, but couldn't find any reviews. The No Drill part appeals to me.

Yeah, it just bolts right into the factory holes for the OEM 'protector'...

Here is a really crappy photo of my CST DEF tank protector... it's hidden behind my nerf bars so couldn't get a good pic.

DEF Protector and Steps

[SIZE="3"]The plated bolted up to the original spacing and with the steps?
Reason I am asking is that CST site state it will NOT bolt up with any Steps OEM or Aftermarket.
Changes my attitude toward the the plate.[/SIZE

You can see my nerf bars in the pic. Those were on before the skid plate was installed. This plate isn't much larger than the OEM plastic plate. I think they are referring to the fold up steps rather than regular, static nerf bars.

And yes, you reuse the bolts that take of the OEM plate and it screws right back in place.

I was wanting the CST skid plate as well but I got an email back from CST saying it will not work with nerf bars. I have N-Fab's but it sure looks like it would work. Are all the bolts on the inside towards the drive shaft? If there are no bolts on the nerf bar side, I would think it would fit
