Re: ORAII package - weight
The skid plates are easy to remove if you want to lose some weight, well the fuel tank skids may be tricky.
Skids do provide protection against that errant rock or tree limb in even mild off roading. Nice to have some underbelly protection if you happen to slide off the highway or go off highway to avoid a more serious accident. Its good insurance, certainly not a waste of wt or money IMHO. The OEM underbelly skids are not good enough for the hardcore. Those that are hardcore typically add to the OEM protection.
