Mine came with the skids. Well, almost all of them. There isn't a tranny skid. It looks like if I'm, say sliding on a centered object it would have to slide over the tranny section eventually. The transmission is a little further up, but there is an exhaust pipe there to be scraped too. I noticed it when I crawled under it before I bought it. Not that my wife is going to let me wheel her Commando hard If it really becomes a problem, there will probably be an aftermarket skid available eventually.
