The undercarriage of your off-roading vehicle is incredibly vulnerable to damage. Sure, you’ve got standard factory equipment that will fend off everyday stuff like the occasional rock, but if you’re going to take your vehicle over large rocks, ice, stumps, ruts, and other challenging terrains, you’re going to need a more robust solution.
That’s where skid plates come in. Skid plates offer straightforward protection for the underside of your vehicle. Skid plates are basically simple sheets of metal that are mounted below your vehicle to protect anything that needs extra protection. And what components need the extra protection of a skid plate?
If one of these elements sustains damage while off-roading, your entire adventure could derail. To ensure you’re able to enjoy the ride, skid plate mods are essential.
Backwoods Adventure Mods’ skid plates are specifically designed and engineered for a precise fit to each vehicle. Key features of our skid plates for the Tacoma include the following:
Lightweight ¼ inch aluminum offers superior lightweight protection.
Steel supports make the system extra secure.
Engine skids, transmission skids, and transfer case skids nest with each other to form one solid piece for exceptional coverage. If you have a Backwoods front bumper, an additional front bumper skid plate can be added to cover the gap.
Simple bolt-on construction that uses factory mounting points
We also carry a DEF tank skid plate for the Mercedes Sprinter. This skid plate protects the diesel exhaust fluid tank from trail damage. It attaches quickly and easily to our Nomad front bumper to keep you safe from ride-ending punctures.
