Like many of you probably have done, I broke the plastics along the bottom on both sides the first time out. After the fact, I have ordered a trail armor skid but anyone know of a company that makes something to go along the bottom of the crew to cover the busted bottoms, like a rock slider, or do I just find a place to order new sides.

The Trail Armor skids stick out past the sides about an inch.
No need for nerf bars/sliders, the skids take care of this, with no ground clearance lost.

Well, were I screwed up was I rode it first, broke both side panel at the bottom, then ordered the skid! so looking for something to cover the lower 2-3 inches of the side. Could even do a strip of Aluminum or something. Tempted to have someone build me a tube all the way across and one that follows the cage shap around the top to protect my cab from trees.

That could work. My !/2 skid would overlap it so i guess Id be losing just a little more clearance but it may cover the bested area on the sides. I can't tell how far up they go but looks like an inch and a half or so. I will compare my break to the pics and see if they will cover. If so, I may grab a set. Thanks.

My vote is for Ricochet Sliders. They look nice and seem like they would protect the plastic very well. I wish I had found them before I broke my plastics.

Since you are using the aluminum to cover your busted sides, and the Trail Armor skid covering the aluminum sliders, that would work.
But I would not use aluminum for anything on the bottom for various reasons.

Would that fit with the lock and ride cab?

I have the same cab system on mine.. Nothing to modify. Straight bolt on for my 2014 crew
You misunderstood my question. If you look closely in the pic, where the bottom rear door hinge is located. It appears the lower part of clutch intake is missing, it appears to have been busted or cut out.

Frank, it may be an optical illusion, but where your lower door hinge is located both front/rear, it appears they cut the plastic at the top of the door hinge all the way across, instead of notching it out for the hinge.
It may just be the shadow, but it sure looks that way.

Wait, I stand corrected. The plastic where the hinge goes, is scored from the factory on the back side to show where to notch, and you do have to notch that out. and then slid back over the hinge after install. My bad. Just a 1/4 " wide slit the height of the hinge.

Yes that is correct, but the pics of Franks crew, looks like they cut the plastic at the top of the hinge back, leaving a gap.
If that is the case, I would have that dealer replace all four pillar covers.
But I can't make it out, to be 100% sure.
What does it look like to you?

It may be just the shadow from the hinge, making that area darker, looking like it is missing in the pic.
